♥The Barnard Zine Library's (BZL) zines are created by women and transfeminine people, with a collection emphasis on zines by women of color and a newer effort to acquire more zines by trans women of all races and ethnicities. We collect zines on feminism and femme identity by people of all genders. The zines are personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, trans feminisms, and other topics.♥
The BZL is part of the Barnard Library and Academic Information Services (BLAIS) in the Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning at Barnard College. The zines are described in the library catalog we share with Columbia University Libraries (CUL), CLIO. Try looking up a topic, e.g., < zines palestin* >
We welcome visitors from everyday zine lovers to international scholars! Contact email@example.com with all of your questions, requests and workshop ideas!
