    ...
    Colleen Theisen is the Outreach and Instruction Special Collections Librarian at the University of Iowa. Her background is in art history and teaching, and she can convince anyone in the world that old books and manuscripts are awesome.
    Andrea Kohashi volleys between the library, where she's getting her MLS, and the Center for the Book, where she's getting her MFA. Amongst the back and forth, she's managed to get hooked on hectographs.
    UPDATE: Check out our blog post about making hectographs
    What it is:
    Brought to you by the printing history nerds in UI Special Collections, this will be a hands-on demonstration of several historical copying technologies used to make zines (as well as little magzines, newsletters, etc). We will demo mimeograph and hectograph (and possibly a ditto machine!), and show some examples of zines produced with these technologies from Special Collections, dating from the 1930s-1980s.

    negatives//things to change/consider in the future:
    last two sessions are challenging energy-wise
    should we try all-online conference?
    what makes this conference appealing to a POC? how do we make it more inclusive? -- this is something we should think about all the time!
    missed connections -- ppl who signed up for the wiki and never registered -- more outreach
    more context out front -- preparation in advance
    survey on established things in advance -- to help smooth the plenary
    more variety in activities to break up sitting and talking
    discussion/presentation/skillshare + service project, zine olympics?
    bring your de-accessioned zines!
    positives:
    opportunities to communicate and work with librarians from other types of libraries
    not too many hard choices -- having the conversations we wanted to have
    both the content and the way/process we have conversations
    financially-accessible
    UI library colleagues attended
    meeting in person is great
    acceptance
    appreciation for fierceness in communities + ability to be vulnerable here
    worlds colliding -- being able to share zine librarian awesomeness with library colleagues
    accessibility
    taking the essence of the zluc back to own work/colleagues
    face-to-face
    open nature of communication
    breaking up the day with workshops, etc.
    shorter length of day / 10am start time
    best zine event of the year!
    being validated for labors of love
