Cataloging: Zine Library Day 2013 zines and more

Our International Zine Library Day event started off slow, but picked up speed around 2pm. 

That's the Barnard Zine Library's BFF Daniela Capistrano from the POC Zine Project looking at the camera. Mwah!
 

Zines created at our belated International Zine Library Day event, July 31, 2013

An Exploration of Heart-Wrenching Soul Music Lyrics by Sy
Not actually cataloged yet because we need to re-scan it. 

A Five Minute Primer on the Proper Brewing of Tea by Thomas Kula
By a Columbia systems librarian. Spoiler: Thomas doesn't take his tea with milk or lemon, but acknowledges that they are popular additions. 

Flammable Turtle by Cat
Cat posits some of Barnard's reasons for banning turtles from its dorms. 

I Am Not a Contradiction: Reflections on Being a Queer Christian by Cat
"I'm working on acknowledging my religion's violent history and its role in our current patriarchal racist society. If I am going to stand up for what is good in the world, I can't ignore these facts." 

"Something I really love about Jesus is that he didn't get married and have a kid & a job. He spent all of his time with friends--most of whom were prostitutes & poor."

File under "Barnard students FTW." 

Journey by RAS

Lower East Side Librarian is Kale Enhanced by Jenna Freedman
The zine title refers to the kale guacamole we served at the event. The zine itself is about not having a good answer when someone asks "How are you?" or "What's new?"

Real Punks Don't Watch the Superbowl by Stephanie Mannheim
The title is inspired by something dumb someone said on Facebook, but the contents, by rising senior Stephanie, reflect on her time at Barnard, in NYC and in the comics communitiy. 

Recent Research Inquiries Submitted to the Barnard College Archives by Martha Tenney
Martha shares three disparate research questions--about women astronauts, Malcolm X's last speech and how to become an archivist. 

[space] by Rakhi
A Barnard student gets elemental.

Ya-Wen makes you work to read this series of "Dear You" letters, but they're worth the effort for sentences like this one:

"I learnt lingerie-posting etiquette for you, and you said 'I've got to go, my kebab is getting cold.'"
