Dummy Zine Invoice.
You can adapt this form for your institution. I bring it to zinefests and the like, fill out titles and prices of zines as I buy them. I then bring the form back to work and trade it for a petty cash reimbursement.
Timberland Regional LIbrary zine invoice
This is the invoice that I created with the assistance of one of our business office staff. (kelsey)
I was disappointed that we didn’t get around to discussing this at the collection develpment session at the Zine Librarians (un)Conference: what are the factors that help you determine that a publication is not a zine?
Of course there are zines that meet one or more of the following criteria, but this list is a place to start. Please add yours in the comments.
- has an ISBN or ISSN
- has a masthead
- not self-distributed
- has a third person bio
- not self-published (!)
- motivated by desire for fame or fortune
- makes a distinct profit
- price ends in .95
- has a spine
- has any paid staff
- reads like the author is auditioning for a book deal
