VCU Libraries zine collection
Scope and Contents
The collection contains approximately 700 zines that were acquired from multiple sources and donors since the 1990s. Self-published by individuals or produced by small groups, the zines represent a wide range of genres including political, personal, DIY, and art zines among others. Many of the zines were created in Virginia or have a connection to Virginia Commonwealth University, but there are also hundreds of zines from other locations, primarily in the United States. Zines that were offered during the annual Richmond Zine Festival since its inception in 2007, are featured prominently in the collection.
