Minutes from ALA Midwinter meetup and question

Hi There zine librarian 

Jenna, Alycia and I met on Saturday January 12th at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

We discussed:


 Independent Publishing Resource Center

 Zine fests are they dead?

Best place to buy zines in Philadelphia: book store Wooden Shoe .

Biggest thing we discussed is there a need for a zine librarian summit?  And where should we have them? One in the  Midwest? And one on the westcoast, perhaps at the PDX Zine Symposium? (This year’s PDX Zine Symposium is August 2nd and 3rd-per IPRC). Readers and participants any thoughts or ideas on this topic?

Respectfully submitted,

Laural Winter, Multnomah County Library
