GZF19 Cut and Paste: Cataloguing for Zine Libraries

Sun 21 April 2019

Cut and Paste cataloguing the zine libra jz8n

How can zine librarians catalogue zines in a way which is cheap and easy, and also meaningful to zinesters and readers?

If zine librarianship isn’t diy-led by the zine community, then who is it for?

This workshop invites zine makers, zine readers, and zine librarians to discuss ideas around cataloguing such as content notes, anonymity, anti-copyright, and how it feels to have work catalogued in ways which might feel at odds with diy radical content. You will also have the chance to contribute to a collaborative zine which will then be shared with the UK and Ireland Zine Librarians group.


Glasgow Zine Fest operates a policy of tolerance, inclusion and accessibility - any participants or guests of the festival are asked to follow this policy. Anyone acting antithetically to our ethos and policies will be asked to leave.

If you are made to feel uncomfortable at any point during your visit to Glasgow Zine Fest, there will be staff on hand to answer any questions or address any issues.

Talks and panel discussions will have BSL interpretation. BSL is available for workshops upon request via Please let us know before 1 April 2019.


For Glasgow Zine Fest events, we use a sliding scale ticketing system for all programming unless otherwise stated. You can choose to pay £2/4/6/8/10 + £1 booking fee for all events, workshops and talks that require tickets.

Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it.
