CSC Zineography: Community Cataloging Project

Image

The CSC Library & Archive is embarking on a community cataloging adventure, and we need your help to make it happen.

Our library and archive is home to an amazing, unique, wonderfully unusual and, as always, sexual– zine collection. We have begun the process of scanning, gaining permissions, and cataloging this collection. Our hope is to inlist members of the community to help with the important job of cataloging these unique artifact of sexual and cultural heritage.

Zine topics range from, sexual health, safe sex, sex worker issues, queer and gender identity, body acceptance, transgender culture, BDSM/kink, and LGBTIQA subject matter.

The goal of the CSC Zineography includes fundraising efforts to house and store the zines for long term preservation, continual scanning and digitization of  the collection for display in digital format, and to create a usable and searchable catalog of our zine collection. We believe that community cataloging is truly the best way to achieve our goals and to provide the best form of access to this important collection.
