The Barnard College Zine Collection
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.
The Little Maga/Zine Collection at the San Franscico Public Library.
The collection spans the twentieth century, with a special emphasis on the San Francisco experience. Over 1,200 titles representative of the literary and cultural phenomenon known as the little magazine, including zines, are contained in this growing collection.
The Denver Zine Library opened in 2003 and houses over 10,000 different zines from all over the world. We are an all-volunteer run nonprofit organization.
Papercut is a fully-functioning lending library, with a focus on hand-made and independently produced materials. Our collection includes everything from the all-familiar photocopied punk rock zines from the 80's to hand-crafted personal zines bound together with yarn. Papercut is run by a collective of volunteer librarians. In addition to archiving and maintaining this collection, librarians also host a number of events including zine making workshops and zine release parties. Become a member today to join this growing community of zine enthusiasts!
The ABC No Rio Zine Library contains over twelve thousand publications. Our collection includes independent, underground and marginal publications on subjects such as music, culture, politics, personal experience and travel. We are most interested in zines addressing political and social issues. Our focus does not include poetry.
The Anchor Archive Zine Library has a collection over over 4000 zines that can be browsed and borrored during our open hours (Tuesday 6-9pm, Sunday 2-5pm). Zines are self-published publications made outside of mainstream press and media, by all kinds of people about all kinds of things. The Anchor Archive sees zines as an important way to take media into your own hands, find a voice for yourself, and find information and stories that aren't represented in mainstream media and culture.
The Papercut Zine Library is a free lending library that specializes in independently published media, particularly zines. It opened on May 14, 2005, and operates out of the Democracy Center at 45 Mt. Auburn St. in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass.
Barnard's zines are written by New York City and other urban women with an emphasis on zines by women of color. (In this case the word "woman" includes anyone who identifies as female and some who don't believe in binary gender.)
Bildwechsel is an umbrella organisation for women+ and their representation in media, culture and art.
We are a meeting point, open stage, platform and an infrastructure which women+ can tap into to share, support and develop their work/projekts/ideas – in connection with the work of others and drawing on their knowlege and experience. We have our background in the feminist critical media movement starting the 1970′s, in the field of representation and gender role science developed in the 80′s and 90′s and in the d.i.y. queer community and the women+ project scene.
We work as an art project, we develop and support events and initiatives and hold archive collections on women+/media/art. We aim to present a panoramic view of the work of women+ artists in transition. We are concerned with the concept of woman+, artist, authorship and anonymity and this interest informs the ways we work.
Bildwechsel is always looking for current film and video productions and other entries by professional amateurs and random observers to be on show in the archives and at bildwechsel activities and be shown as requested for interested festival organizers, scientists and every other person that is making an appointment.
