We want your zines!
Are you a zinester? Do you run a distro? Do you have an overwhelming personal collection of zines that you don’t know what to do with? We want to hear from you!
The Stuart Hall Library is expanding our collection to incorporate zines and self-published material. We are looking for zines relating to cultural diversity, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, as well as personal zines, political zines, artist zines, and music zines etc.
The Stuart Hall Library is one of the leading specialist libraries in its field, focusing on international visual arts and British artists from culturally diverse backgrounds. The library has a unique collection of exhibition catalogues and monographs, as well as a strong focus on cultural and critical theory, diaspora, gender studies, and media studies.
The new zine collection at the Stuart Hall Library will be a unique opportunity to collect and preserve a wide variety of self-published material.
With your help we want to build a unique resource which will be made available to all researchers and the general public, providing access to a wide range of self-published material in keeping with the Stuart Hall Library collection, and documenting the importance of zine culture.
All donations are welcome and should be sent to Stuart Hall Library, Iniva, Rivington Place, London, EC2A 3BA. Zines will be catalogued and incorporated into the library collection. You can search for all library materials, including zines, via the online library catalogue .
We also welcome any suggestions for zines that you think would make a welcome addition to our new zine collection. Please let us know your recommendations in the comments section below or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for some exciting future zine related events in the library. . .
