There’s going to be two different panels at the Portland Zine Symposium next weekend that spin out of the Zine Pavilion and the Iowa City Zine Librarian (un)Conference.
There’s No South Side in a Zine Library: Breaking the Color Line of Zine Archiving – Marya Errin Jones / Saturday 2-3
There’s No South Side in a Zine Library: Breaking the Color Line of Zine Archiving will launch a panel discussion on strategies to diversify an existing zine collection to better reflect the diversity of individuals producing zines today. Using ideas raised at the 2013 Zine Librarians (un)Conference, this panel will discuss and identify barriers to integrating strong, balanced collections, and leave participants with solid approaches to bridging the gap between communities via an open chat.
Zine Libraries and You. – Kelly McElroy / Saturday 3-430
