Cataloguing the OCAD U Zine Library Collection: Research Wednesdays Presentation

Cataloguing the OCAD U Zine Library Collection with Marta Chudolinska at the Learning Zone  Feb 27, 1-2 pm.
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

This talk will explore a variety of issues in cataloguing zines, including choosing a classification system appropriate for zines, cataloguing software options and the challenges of describing items in this unique special collection. 

Learning Zone Librarian Marta Chudolinska has been working with the collection since 2009. In 2017, her team achieved their long-term goal of having an online, open and searchable catalog of the collection, hosted on Artstor’s JSTOR Forum.

The OCAD U Zine Library is an ever-growing collection of self-published and handmade publications located in the OCAD U Library’s Learning Zone. The collection was created to inspire, educate and entertain, to encourage collaboration between OCAD U students and to open the world of zines for readers and creators everywhere. 

All are welcome!

Cataloguing the OCAD U Zine Library Collection is part of Research Wednesdays speaker series presented by the OCAD U Library. It's a forum for anyone (undergrad, or graduate students, staff, or faculty) to present in a casual, supportive environment about research activities, collections and more. We apply a broad definition of research which includes a variety of activities within the domains of art, design, libraries and archives. This event is open to all members of the OCAD U community as well as the general public.
