update -- some helpful context can be found in
Milo's handy zine
and the discussions from the past few years'
a zine library?
may seem redundant and obvious, but
curious what are the motivations behind trying to establish and cultivate zine libraries.
is this important? What motivates you to work on this? Has there been
practical outcomes/benefits that you have witnessed from curating these collections and making them available?

-- distinctions from US
to collecting, etc.

13 -- POC zines in collections - ZINE LIBRARIANS ♥: Do you have any #zines by POC on your shelves? If not, why? We are here to help if you need it. #accountability #outreach #duedilligence #OnePOCzineIsn'tEnough "Not sure if I don't have POC zines in my library because there aren't any local POC zinesters or if it's because I didn't do any outreach with local orgs of color." POC Zine Project on Facebook. Think the active outreach piece of this is important. - Jude
in zine collections e.g.
of color, how does this and doesn't this intersect with scope of collection question
