About ZLIG

The zine libraries interest group is a collective of people interested in zine libraries, from starting up a collection to cataloging the materials. The group is currently very grassroots and most of the activity takes place on the zine librarians e-mail listserv. Zinelibraries.info was created in 2007 to share resources regarding collections, programming, preservation, and the promotion of zine collections–beyond the email list.

We would like zinelibraries.info to exist as a place where zine librarians of all stripes can share information, documentation, advice and news pertinent to zine libraries worldwide. We welcome zine librarians and archivists to sign up, log in, create content, post blog entries and to use this site in whatever ways best support and improve zine libraries everywhere!

    Nadineszines is a blog that my student workers at the Nadine Vorhoff LIbrary at the Newcomb College Institute at Tulane University in New Orleans, La. create. At least once a week, students review zines that I purchase for the Vorhoff, a small special collections library consisting of monographs, mostly gender and women’s studies in nature. We also have a non-circulating collection of zines from the mid to late 1990’s in the Newcomb Archives.

    These are other people doing similar things.

    I’m a librarian at the John M. Kelly Library in the University of Toronto. I’m starting a zine initiative and wanted to join your listserv. How can I join?
