Where is the zine collection?

Our zines are located in the Reading Room on the periodical shelves. They are organized alphabetically by title, with
‚Äčtiny zines separate in their own box. 


How do I find and check out a zine?

Our zines are cataloged into Thorncat and can be checked out like any other library material.

You search for a zine like you would any other book in the library —

  • If you have a specific zine you'd like to search for, you can enter the title, keyword, and/or author in the search bar:


  • If it's in the collection, it will show up in a page like this:

  • The call number will be ZINE followed by the first letter of the title, or ZINE TINY if it's in the tiny zine collection.
  • You can find your zine by browsing through the boxes.
  • Zines can then be checked out like any other library book. The zine will be placed in a protective case when it's checked out to you, and should be returned inside the case.
