Sharing zine cataloging procedures

The Franklin & Marshall College Library in Lancaster, Pennsylvania has a zine collection of a few hundred titles. In October, librarians Anna Boutin-Cooper and E Marcovitz gave a presentation at the ArLiSNAP virtual conference titled One Summer, Two People, & a Zine Backlog: a How-To for New Catalogers. (The presentation was recorded and should be available this month, I’ll update this post when it’s available.)

Their library has a zine collection of a few hundred titles, check out their LibGuide at library.fandm.edu/zinelibrary for more information about its scope. The presenters were also kind enough to share their library’s zine cataloging procedures for their WMS catalog, which have been added to our Zine Cataloging resource page.

If you have zine library related procedures or policies that you’d like to share, please get in touch, we’d be glad to link to them or host them on this site to help other library folks!
