UK and Ireland Zine Librarians began as a small JiscMail list created to share resources, skills, and advice for all zine librarians regardless of professional status or job title. While our US counterparts had already made great strides regarding acquisitions, cataloguing, and copyright guidance, UK and Irish zine libraries were still grappling with some of the more basic elements and finding ways to adapt these ideas to our own collections. How can institutional librarians and DIY community grassroots collections learn from each other? And can we establish a best practice of zine librarianship while remaining true to the DIY ethos of zines?
