Delighted to report that there will be another Zine Librarians unConference in 2019: planning has started for an event on Monday October 28, at the Olympia Timberland Library in Olympia, Washington. This unconference will opportunistically follow this year’s Olympia Zine Fest, which is taking place October 25-27.

At last weekend’s ZL(u)C we played Zinester Rights And Permissions Bingo based on Jenna’s list with much laughter good cheer. If you would like to download the cards (30) for playing at your own institution, a PDF is available here. These are intended to be printed on Tabloid (11×17″) but would probably fit on A3 also.
