We do not have a set or recommended rate. We suggest whatever you’d pay a white guy to talk about technology.

The above zine librarians hold one or more marginalized identities, including race or ethnicity. They can speak on a range of zine librarianship topics.

BIPOC/BAME zine librarians (MLIS not required!), add your information by editing this page, making a comment, or emailing zines@barnard.edu.
