The Zine Library is physically closed until further notice, but zine library staff are active. Email with questions, for research support, or to learn more about our growing COVID19 zine collection.

Due to COVID-19, the Barnard Zine Library is physically closed until further notice. Staff continue to work remotely and can support researchers, students, faculty, staff, and alums with research requests; please email

The zine librarian is on-site sporadically, offering limited scanning and remote reference services. Please email with specific requests. Review the section on catalog searching on our Collections & Access page for guidance on finding zines by title or topic.

We hope to resume limited in-person appointments as soon as possible, dependent on limited staffing capacity and public health guidance. Please email if you would like to be added to an email list to be notified when in-person appointments are available. 

A small percentage of our zines are available electronically.
