The MKE ZL(u)C will be held at the <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="http://www4.uwm.edu/libraries/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">Golda Meir Library Conference Center</a> on the campus of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee on Friday, July 8th and Saturday, July 9th, 2011. &nbsp; <h3 id="toc0">What's an (un)conference?</h3> This is from <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="http://freeasinkittens.com/erics-blog/another-drupal-camp" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">Eric Goldhagen's blog</a> and was written about Drupal Camp in NYC but applies to the ZL(u)C, too. <ul> <li>An unconference is a participant centric conference, the structure is more concerned with the value to the participants than the value for the sponsors or organizers (in a similar way that the GPL Free Software license is more concerned with the rights of the software user than the software owner)</li> <li>At a normal conference, the hallway conversations tend to be the best parts. At an unconference, it's all hallway!</li> <li>unconfernece tires to replicate the community centric nature of Free Software projects in the way we organize an event. Everyone is a participant.</li> <li>Whoever shows up are the right people to have here</li> <li>Whatever happens is what is supposed to happen</li> <li>If you find yourself in a place where you are neither learning or contributing, be respectful but use your feet to find another room where you can learn and contribute</li> <li>Your participation is not only welcome, it's necessary</li> </ul> <div class="ws-menu-bar WikiControls WikispacesContent WikispacesBs3"> <h1 class="pageTitle"><a href="http://mkezluc.wikispaces.com/2011+ZL%28u%29C+Proposal">2011 ZL(u)C Proposal</a></h1> </div> <div class="commentContainer"> <div class="div-canvas"></div> <div class="commentSubject"> <div id="content_view" class="wiki wikiPage"> <strong><span class="author-g-60z122zublspvww60g4d">Spirits In The Stacks - The 2011 Zine Librarian (un)Conference</span></strong> <span class="author-g-60z122zublspvww60g4d">Formed in 2</span><span class="author-g-s5r6z122z5x2lw6mu62s">003</span><span class="author-g-60z122zublspvww60g4d">, the <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/zinelibrarians/" rel="nofollow">Zine Librarians Yahoo Group</a> (ZLYG) has served as a focal point for discussion about the best practices for preserving and presenting </span><a class="wiki_link_ext" href="http://zinewiki.com/Zine" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">zines</a><span class="author-g-60z122zublspvww60g4d"> in libraries and archives. Zines, self-publications written in a punk rock do-it-yourself tradition, are primary source documents that tell the story of contemporary life, culture, and politics in a multitude of voices that might otherwise be lost. They represent voices and points of view that are all but absent from most library shelves. </span> <span class="author-g-s5r6z122z5x2lw6mu62s">Zine librarianship, a relatively new specialty, is still evolving its principles and practice. The ZYLG served as an essential forum for this collaboration. Since 2009 members of the have been meeting annually to confer on the broad subject of zine librarianship. The ZLYG is comprised of public, academic, and independent librarians and archivists who work with zines, comix, and print ephemera.</span> <span class="author-g-s5r6z122z5x2lw6mu62s">The first two conferences were held in the Pacific Northwest, zine culture strongholds. This year we hope to make the event more accessible to Midwestern zine librarians, zine aficionados, and print culture academics.

This could be hands-on, or a presentation of what your library has done well. Note: This is a call only for workshops that require extensive pre-planning, are practical in nature, or require specific materials. We will also have <strong>facilitated discussions</strong> at the conference, but those will be selected at the conference itself. <a class="wiki_link" href="http://mkezluc.wikispaces.com/possible-discussions">List of potential discussion topics.</a> Please add yours! </div> </div> </div> <div></div> <div> Just to keep track of who is willing to to what, where we are, and what skills we have, here's a page for the conference (un)organizers. Jenna: in NYC. happy to help with whatever. really busy during the week and has a hard time responding to emails and getting tasks done. this may change in late april/early may. Milo: on the ground in Milwaukee. attempting to steer the ship with a little help from friends ;) Kelly: Moving to Iowa in May. Also happy to help with any old thing. For the last ZLUC in Portland, I got coffee donated, so maybe I'll start with that. Also, am working on ways to help people attend from afar through video conferencing. Alycia: happy to help however I can--planning or on the ground in July. Carolyn: on the ground in Milwaukee. Can help with specific tasks that need to be done. Kelsey: can't attend, but willing to help with whatever needs doing remotely. Jessica: point-person in Special Collections. willing to help wherever it's needed. Molly Mathias, Learning Commons Coordinator at the UWM Libraries. Can help with facilities issues and just keeping things running smoothly. </div> &nbsp; Things we might talk about at the conference. Actually this is the (un) part of it, as discussion topics will be chosen by the group, at the conference. Microcosm--calls for accountability and a boycott. What, if anything, should libraries do? "Barefoot Librarians" break-out discussion. Phrase coined by Lily to describe indy/unaffiliated librarians and archivists. Volunteer librarians, professionals, and community members working as equals. (Inspired by http://eatingouryoung. wordpress.com/2011/02/22/non- profit-doesnt-make-you-exempt- from-shaming) standard catalog format/software for zines? Union catalog? Starting a collection / Moving from indy collection to institution. Establishing a zine libraries day (during National Library Week or International Zine Month) Starting/Continuing a collection with little/no budget, ethically (can/should a collection be based on donations alone, especially within an institutional collection?) Managing our records: should we create a space where documentation about our collections can be gathered and shared? A meta-wiki, or something to add to an existing site, like zinelibraries.info? Gatekeeper institutions and their place in the zine library world, especially so considering the aversion many zine-makers have to the management and restricted access that apply to collections held within such places. Also, how can gatekeepers engage with the zine community ethically? This could also be part of a broader discussion on ethics in public zine collection management. Zine Library FAIL--lessons learned from things we wish we'd done differently Zines and information literacy: ideas for incorporating zines into library instruction sustaining zine collections at public libraries--convincing administration of their ongoing value &nbsp;
