cataloging

I have such a love/hate relationship with Library of Congress subject headings, that thought I might attempt to cultivate the same in you. So, for your enjoyment and frustration, here are new-to-the-zine-collection subject headings I applied to zines while cataloging this weekend:

Looking for an intership for the Fall 2011 semester? The Lesbian HERstory Achives need you!

The Olneyville Library in Providence, Rhode Island, is trying to expand its local comics/art books/zine collection, so that the public can have access to these rare local gems.

Zine Apothecary, a new circulation distro in Minneapolis, needs donations for themselves and their sister project The Fly Away Zine Mobile.

Moira Clunie has generously improved our collection with new-to-us zines from New Zealand, Australia, and the UK.


I have finished cataloging the backlog of all zines purchased for or donated to the Barnard Library Zine Collection from the time we began collecting zines in 2003 (or 2004?) through when I stopped opening new donation packages late last summer!

I'm working my way through our cataloging backlog, which I hope to finish by the end of the semester. This weekend, I'm tackling zines starting with the letter U. Much can be gleaned about girl and feminist culture from zines, even from just their titles, so I thought I'd list the titles of the U zines I'm working on. For your delectation and edification:
