Description: 

Zines offer a unique way for libraries to expand their print collections and connect with their communities in a time when so much of our work is going digital. Handmade publications that can cover any subject, many zines represent perspectives rarely covered in other print media. Zines offer a range of programming opportunities for youth and adults alike. Participants in the workshop will learn from librarians who have brought zines into their collections, as well as those who have used zines for programming and outreach. Topics include what zines are, the history of zines, how libraries are incorporating them, and ways that they are being used to connect with community. You will leave with ideas and concrete steps for getting started with zines in your institution, no matter your budget or institutional culture.
