A zine, short for magazine or “fanzine,” is a non-commercial, handmade, self-published resource often devoted to unique or specialized subject matter.[i] Zines can be made with just pen and paper, but they also often include re-purposed texts and images. Like many other libraries, the Rutgers University Libraries-New Brunswick collects zines and uses them for teaching, marketing, workshops, and more.

Have questions about Zines or would like to incorporate them into your courses please contact Megan Lotts, Art Librarian at or learn more at the following website:
