Shared Zines Catalog Surveys

Zine librarians have published two surveys:

Shared Zine Library Catalog: What do zine makers & readers want, if anything?

For several years, a group of zine librarians from collections in public, collective, and academic spaces in the US and Canada have been working toward building an online catalog where readers and researchers could search all of our zine collections at once. We're excited about it, but it's a lot of work, so we need to know...do zine makers and zine readers even want such a catalog? (btw worldcat.org is an example of this type of catalog, but not specifically for zines and just for capital L Libraries). Respond to the survey!
 

Shared Zine Library Catalog: Library Survey (for zine librarians)

For several years, a group of zine librarians from collections in public, collective, and academic spaces have been working toward building an online catalog where readers and researchers could search all of our zine collections at once. This survey is intended to gather information about our individual collections to better anticipate what kinds of metadata and system considerations a shared catalog would need to take into account. We'd love your feedback and input if you are interested in sharing it; participation is entirely voluntary. Data from the survey will not be shared in such a way that your responses could be linked to any personally identifying (or institution-identifying) information you choose to share with us. Respond to the survey!
