This November will mark the 10th anniversary of our beloved OCAD Zine Library! Launched in the Library by artist (and, at the time, printmaking student) Alicia Nauta, the collection moved to the Learning Zone when it opened in 2009 and has grown from a few shelves of zines to over 2,000 items!
Last spring we launched an online zine catalogue so researchers can better access the array of titles we have in our collection. To use our catalogue, created and stored on ArtStor Shared Shelf, browse items by keyword, author name, title, subject, material or technique and click on the text under the image to access more information about the item. In the section entitled "Repository" you will find the call number for the zine.
July was International Zine Month, and this year the OCAD Zine Library, in collaboration with student group the OCADU Zine Collective, suggested a month's worth of zine-related activities for students.
