I acquired some loverly new zines at the exhilarating Feminism and Zines event organized by librarian-artist-activist Jude Vachon at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh


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!

Just now in the thick of processing a box of donations from the presumably wonderful Sarah Rose, of Tazewell’s Favorite Eccentric and other zines. Let me be the first to tell you: this box is full of gems. We now finally have stacks copies (hell yes that means they’ll circulate) of a bunch of stuff, and archival copies of way, way more, including an issue of Girl Germs I have never even seen before (and I am getting on in years). I’ll post updates to the archives as they’re processed, but for now, check out what’s new to the stacks:

Wallflower started out as a Geocities webzine, whatever "webzine" meant to the author, Kristina Aikens, in 1997. Check out the Wayback Machine's capture of Kristina's site. Ah, youth (the World Wide Web's, that is)!
