Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Fanzines Collection consists of numerous zines acquired by Special Collections at various times and which are not attached to a particular donor or otherwise dedicated collection. This collection is, in a sense, the equivalent of a general materials collection in a library.

The zines in this collection constitute a wide variety of subjects and concerns. Many are perzines, that is, "personal" zines that describe the author's own experiences, thoughts and feelings. Others are anthologies of stories or poetry, or consist of comic or other types of art. Still other zines are designed as outlets for political or social expression. Many zines encompass more than one type or style, reflecting the fluidity of the zine as a product of creative endeavor.

This collection was previously known as the Floating Zine Collection.
