We’re kicking off #CZF2018 with a special pre-fest event! Take a tour of the extensive zine collection that is part of DePaul University Library’s Special Collections and Archives. We’ll have the opportunity to peruse a selection of zines from this academic collection and talk with librarians who work with the archive.

DePaul has been collecting zines since 1994 with a focus on Midwestern zines. The library has 18 individual zine collections —thousands of zines! — primarily from the 1980s-2010s. A wide variety of topics are represented including music, politics, incarceration, LGBTQA, personal narratives, comics, fiction, and many more.


Our visit to the zine collection at DePaul University Library’s Special Collections and Archives on May 17 is officially SOLD OUT!

We’re thrilled by the enthusiastic response we’ve received to this community event! If you’d like to be added to our waitlist for the zine collection visit, please email us at and we’ll let you know if a spot opens up.

If you grabbed an EventBrite ticket and can’t make it after all, please let us know so we can offer the spot to someone else.

If you won’t be attending our event, you’re welcome to visit the zine collection on your own. DePaul Special Collections and Archives is open to the public from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the John T. Richardson Library, 2350 N. Kenmore Ave., Room 314, Chicago IL 60614. No appointment is necessary. More info here.
