And of course like any decent organizers, at the end of the conference we did a go around where everyone said what they liked about the event and what could have made it better. And we set up some working groups to keep things going after the conference ended. I know it's morbid, but the term I learned to use for this exercise is post-mortem.

This is another report back from the Zine Librarians (Un)conference: my notes on the collection development/intellectual freedom session.
The idea here was to sort out how we use all of the different online resources we've created and will create, including, but not limited to
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.
