Join us for a Virtual Meetup for Barefoot Zine Librarians

The zine collection that will be the basis of Emergent Zine Library

This is a photo of the zine collection in my living room that will soon turn into a pop up zine library experiment in Kansas City, MO.

During the 2013 Zine Librarian’s Unconference, I became aware of a desire to connect more with the zine librarians group. I wanted more opportunities to share support, resources, and solidarity with other people who are making zine libraries happen. I also knew I might not be able to attend the next conference in person, and this made me desire more online possibilities for sharing and support.

Milo also took interest in this idea, and he contacted me about arranging our first zine librarian’s virtual meetup.

The result is that we will attempt to use google hangout to host a virtual meetup for barefoot zine librarians. ”Barefoot” libraries and librarians are ones that are usually autonomous and not affiliated with public or academic libraries. Infoshops, Community Centers, zine libraries in your garage – they are all relevant!

Right now we are choosing the dates. You can help by passing the word onto other barefoot zine librarians and marking your availability on the doodle poll.

Hope to see you at the meeting!

Zine Librarians (un)Conference in Seattle, March 14-15

Zine librarians, collectors and creators are invited to the Richard Hugo House and the Zine Archive and Publishing Project for two days of discussion and presentation centered around the collecting and organizing of zines; be they in libraries, archives, infoshops, basements, or living rooms.

Blending a traditional conference with the Unconference model, this gathering will be participatory and open. Workshops will be scheduled, and discussions of cataloging, organizing and promoting zine collections are expected, among other topics. All members of the zine community, including non-librarians, are invited to join in and take part.

CALL FOR WORKSHOPS:

If you are interested in leading a one-hour workshop during the conference, please submit the following information by creating a page for it on this wiki and listing it on the proposals page by Friday, February 28th, 2009:

1. The title of your workshop
2. Your name and a very brief biography of all workshop leaders (1-3 sentences each)
3. A brief (100 word) summary of topics you would address
4. Any tools, equipment or technology that would be required
5. Add your proposal to this list:
1. Proposals
2. And then create a page for it (You’ll need to be logged into the wiki to do so) and link to it. (As in the example of Zine Anatomy)

Guidelines for workshops: We are interested in hosting workshops that will be informational, how-to’s and describe a task, skill or scheme that another zine library would find useful. This could be hands-on, or a presentation of what your library has done well. Note: This is a call only for workshops that require extensive pre-planning, are practical in nature, or require specific materials. We will also have facilitated discussions at the conference, but those will be selected at the conference itself. List of potential discussion topics. Please add yours!
