Zines at the Brooklyn College Library

Just a quick note that the Brooklyn College Library Zine Collection now has a site of its own where I and the fabulous zine interns will be sharing news, thoughts and information about our collecting as well as about zines in general. The site is a part of the CUNY Academic Commons, a pretty fantastic site in and of itself.

Brooklyn College Library seeks its first Zine Intern!

I'm looking for a zine intern for this summer and for subsequent semesters! Click through for more info/details.

Looking for Brooklyn Zines

I am starting a zine collection at Brooklyn College! The collection is going to be focused upon Brooklyn, and thus will include works made within the borough or about it, as well as any zine made by a current or former Brooklyn College-affiliated person, and zines about zines.

Do you know of something that we should add to our collection? Get in touch! Send me a line at zinecollection at brooklyn.cuny.edu. I'm following Barnard's model and trying to collect 2 copies--one for preservation and one for browsing in the library.

The collection's mailing address is below.

Shirley Chisholm Day

Tuesday, November 24th is Shirley Chisholm Day.

Even if you don't live in Bed Stuy, visit my post office or go to Brooklyn College, I think it would do us all good to reflect a bit tomorrow on the spirit and vigor that Chisholm embodied. "Be a catalyst for change."
