The International Zine Librarians unConference 2020 was a breathtaking experience and collaboration. Let’s document how we made it happen and our feels about it.
We want to cover the topics listed on this spreadsheet and welcome others. Contributions can take the form of narratives, lists, recipes, limericks, comics, or whatever you’ve got, but note that the mission is providing documentation for next time. You can layout your own piece or leave the design to the co-editors. Just be sure to leave us a nice margin!

During International Zine Month 2020, zine librarians will host an online, international event, following by a longer, more intensive zine librarians shindig later in 2020. We would like to set some guidelines (code of conduct, safer/braver spaces policy, open to other ways to identify these guidelines). The coordination working group will propose something to the rest of the organizers, based on the most useful elements from other codes/policies/guidelines.
We invite you to share your favorites here in the comments. You do not need an account to comment.
