New Collection Development Policy

We have tweaked our collection development policy for the second time since the zine collection was established in 2003.

What we came up with after a nuanced discussion on LiveJournal is:

"Barnard's zines are written by women (cis- and transgender) with an emphasis on zines by women of color. We collect zines on feminism and femme identity by people of all genders. The zines are personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, trans experience, and other topics."

Thanks to everyone who contributed. We continue to welcome comments--on LiveJournal, Facebook, or via email.
