new zines

I thought cataloging this week was going to be messed up because of the government shutdown and the resultant shutdown of the Library of Congress resources to which I refer. But...it seems that the LoC web is back!

Last night the ABC No Rio cat, Cookiepuss left the building. One of her favorite places at No Rio was the zine library, where she would keep the zines awaiting processing warm and furry. This week's entry is dedicated to her.

Friday the 13th black cat because any excuse to post a photo of a cat. (But I'm not a complete librarian stereotype because I don't knit.)

Fridays are my dedicated cataloging days, but today I sneaked off to meet a colleague's new itty-bitty baby. That means I'll catch up Saturday and probably Sunday, too. I'll mostly be continuing to work my way through Keight's mighty collection donation.

This weekend I've added zines I bought or traded for at Pete's Mini Zine Fest and the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine. 

This weekend is going to be hella ziney, even for a zine librarian:

Friday--8 hours of zine cataloging
Saturday--5 hours of tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest
Sunday--3 hours of assembling and packaging the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine

It's back to cataloging zines from Keight Bergmann's gift. Hello again, 1990s!

Two weeks ago I was on my way to the Zine Librarians unConference in Iowa City, and last week I was on staycation, so it feels like I haven't cataloged a zine in FOREVER. 


This is what I was doing instead--still pretty fun!
