Thank you for sharing. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Loved the program zine: space for notes, something to review later, inspiring and fun</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Had a lot of fun</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The idea of zine librarianship is relatively new, so excited that it's something I can do</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Gratitude, positive experience, glad boss let me come. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Glad to have academic librarians to connect with. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Meeting folks from all over, but also meeting librarians from nearby to where the ZLuC is hosted. Connecting with folks from region of where the unconference is hosted.  Friendship and accountability.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">"Punk rock nerd camp" looks forward to it every summer, real-time interactions.

(acknowledges preconceptions about Salt Lake City). </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">My heart is full. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Liked having a facilitator who set an agenda, shared it, etc. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Outreach session was my favorite. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Loved the zine reading and the Q&amp;A with readers afterward, how they feel about having their zines in libraries. Great to have folks who are zine makers but not also zine librarians and zine fest organizers like we are. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Inspirational that zine librarians are so willing to be ourselves, to share ourselves (be multiple selves). "It's hard to be weird and a competent professional."</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Cool to get to know more about zines, and get to know more about unconferences. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Public transit, especially from the airport</span></li> </ul> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Takeaways (Lauren notetaker)</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">What the zine scene is like in SLC and how that can transfer to different communities</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">So many questions answered about zines in libraries and zine librarianship</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Connecting zine creation with standards in k-12 education to get teachers more engaged in using zines in the classroom</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Donate a zine to their collection and making copies to distribute</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Inspired to do zine work in libraries.  Not just workshops, but throughout many aspects of job responsibilities</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">A lot of notes and ideas that are percolating </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Possibility of mentorship from people met at ZLuC.  Affinity/Interest group formation.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Energized from real time interactions.  Being in the same space together, shit gets done.  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Each ZLuC is special and unique, process for planning is iterative and ongoing.  Thinking about what can be coordinated in one’s hometown.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Favorite session was outreach and storytelling - how zines are the medium to tell so many different kinds of stories.  Tactile. Visual. Keep, save away, throwaway (recycle). Can be taken anywhere and shared with anyone. The work that we do in libraries, and as zine enthusiasts, we are the best advocates for this community.  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Great to connect with zinesters at the zine reading.  Important to not just talk to librarians about perspectives.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Experience of attending an unconference - anthropologist.  </span></li> </ul> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Improvements (Honor)</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Handouts of recommendations for facilitators; guidelines/how to/encouragement to participate</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">This could be a zine! </span><b>ACTION ITEM!</b></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Note takers Identify action items; spend 5 minutes at end of session and identify folks willing to take on action items</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Establish goals for start of conversation, maybe better use of whiteboards</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">+1 for facilitators toolkit; </span></li> </ul> </li> </ul> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Quick recap on first day about this is an unconference, this is what that means/context for owning your experience</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">One library has meeting standards/best practices posted in every room, does a quick check in before each meeting</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ice breaker on first day would have been a good way to ease into the conference, meet folks you might not be in sessions with</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Contacts for attendees: Juli meant to do an attendee list, now she has an </span><b>ACTION ITEM!</b></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">For attendee list: it would be helpful if folks could identify their area of interest</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Housing was expensive; issue with multi-level marketing scheme convention jacking up all the prices--future organizers should be mindful of external events that might eff everything up; maybe the local tourist office could help with this?</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Never made it to zine making space b/c so much other awesome stuff happening, but if it were more central, maybe they might have</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Jargon dictionary zine to help bridge conversation between folks with tons of zine experience but less library experience/librarians with not so much zine experience</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Acronym finder </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">New articles for zinelibraries.info</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Is anyone willing to take on this work? wrangling/delegating</span></li> </ul> </li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Make zine at each as part of feedback; action items</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Next year have program with cut outs for use in creating feedback/takeaways/words advice zine  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">More consideration/programming for early career folks/students</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">More zine recommendations!
