Can anyone tell me if the library was allocated a budget.
It would be great to build it into a vast small press resource.
There's some first rate titles on the shelves right now but no-one can sit and read a novel in a day (maybe that's why a lot of books disappear)
It's been ten years since I was seriously in touch,
back then I subscribed to
Bypass (catalogue for british zines)and
Factsheet 5 (catalogue for American zines)
it seems they are still flourishing both on and offline
I've signed up to FS5 Mailing List and will reprint each post out here.
It would also be great to send out and get all our publications listed.
Of course the sweetness of the zine scene is that most publications are offered for exchange.
Lastly security is tough, and zines will no doubt disappear.
Maybe a great sign above the shelves written in undark paint stating
STEALING FROM LIBRARIES IS A SOCIAL EVIL
would work as a someway deterrent.
