The Zine Librarians unConference is coming to Minneapolis this summer! Please mark your calendars for July 12-14 and spread the word!
The Zine Librarians unConference, aka ZLuC, is an informative and fun gathering of people who care deeply about zines. ZLuC is a multi-day affair that welcomes workers and volunteers from public, academic, and special libraries, as well as community-oriented independent libraries and archives. Like other unconferences, the topics that will be discussed aren’t determined in advance—they’re decided on by the participants during the event. Typical topics covered include collection development, event programming, teaching with zines, preservation, and cataloging. This year’s event will be held at three venues: Minneapolis Community and Technical College, University of Minnesota Twin Cities Libraries, and Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central.
Best of all, registration for ZLuC is free. Whether you’re thinking of starting a zine collection, planning your first zine workshop, or already considering the nitty-gritty details of maintaining your collection, consider attending one or more days of ZLuC 2018!
