The idea behind this session was to explore several different online tools for possible use as a shared catalog, where zine libraries of all types should upload records and holdings data, sort of, as we ended up calling it in the workshop, a "non-evil OCLC for zines." Whoever the official note taker was for the session will post to the (un)conference wiki.
The first session I attended at the Zine Librarians (un)Conference was about how zine libraries serve the zine making community, as opposed to how we serve historians and the general reading public. We specifically asked non-librarian zine makers to attend this conference in order to get their feedback on how we're doing and what we could do better.
Members of Radical Reference (i.e. Lia and me) organized a free unconference to precede the Association of College and Research Libraries biennial conference. About a dozen attendees met for four and a half hours and discussed critical pedagogy, what it means to be a radical librarian, and workplace issues and also conducted a 45-minute work session where we cleared the Radical Reference site of its unanswered questions.
