We have tweaked our collection development policy for the second time since the zine collection was established in 2003.
Zine Apothecary, a new circulation distro in Minneapolis, needs donations for themselves and their sister project The Fly Away Zine Mobile.
There's a zine fest happening June 16th - September 13 at the Miami Dade Public Library and the opening from 7:00-8:30 on June 16th is promising special performances, a 14-foot inflatable moon, and lots and lots of zines!
Marissa Falco, one of the biggest donors to our zine library, has been interviewed by Craft Land for her crafty creations!
Brooklyn College Library seeks its first Zine Intern!
The Brooklyn College Library is looking for a motivated library school student with an interest in small and self-published magazines, underground publications, alternative materials, or print culture to help organize and promote our new zine collection. The Brooklyn College Library Zine Collection is focused geographically on work that is being produced within the borough of Brooklyn, and our first intern will help shape what is to come with this inaugural collection for CUNY. This internship could encompass duties related to the collection, organization, and processing of items in the collection, as well as the study and promotion of zines and independent media. According to the interests of the intern, they also might work on special projects related to the collection, and/or gain experience with the wider functions of the Brooklyn College Library, especially within the Information Services Department.
