I'm married to a first-time marathoner running New York on Sunday, so this cataloging report is dedicated to him.
This is the week I finish cataloging Keight Bergmann's donation. Thank you SO MUCH Keight!!!
That's Keight on the front/right wearing a blue scarf. Also pictured are Yumi Lee (back left), who donated her zines in 2006; Marissa Falco (in the cute hat), who donated her zine collection in 2009 and Laura Fisher, holding the bicycle (maybe we'll get her zines in 2015?).

Don't get me wrong--we don't take Columbus Day off at Barnard, nor do I want to honor Cristofero Colombo in any way. It's just a different thing to say than Zine Cataloging Report: 10/11/13. This will be a half day's worth of zine cataloging since I spent a few hours today at a radical archives working group meeting organized by Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani.
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!
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.
