Halfway there.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Collaborative zine.  Not a lot of contributions the day of, but over time collected content. Then used for outreach.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Social Justice heroes on campus.  Get students to create zines about them.  Templated pieces: interview, pasting, collaboration, librarians fill in as needed. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">How is program promoted, “sold,” to potential participants.  → All about bringing awareness to zine collection, with a goal to start a club with students or patrons to take leadership for the zine collection.  Work with professors for instruction (rather than programming).  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tabling, fairs.  “De-stress week” and “consent fair.”  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Collaborative zine → can be made over time, i.e. combining contributions to the zine from different events and make a yearly zine or a zine for the semester.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Collaboration with external partners, i.e. youth tribe or girls rock camp, etc.  Intro to zines, then whatever you put on the page is your zine. Librarians collated contributions to the zine and then gave to the group at the end of the week.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Turnout can be low with college students.  Hold events off campus to be more inclusive, but there’s a lot of components</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">What kind of thematic content are events coordinated around?  Meaning could be just getting people together to let them know that the collection is available.  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">What kind of supplies are used?</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Typewriter</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight:

</ul> </li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Failures:</span> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Too much programming → mini zines,
