The Zine Library is a new resource for experiential pedagogy sponsored by the Faculty Center and developed so far by the generosity of the English Department, the Beekman Library, the Faculty Center,  and several faculty members.  The Library includes zines, pamphlets, artists' books, literary chapbooks, independent magazines, and radical and alternative publications of all kinds, both contemporary and historical. What unifies all these types of publications is a passionate attitude and an urgent desire to communicate and express. Whether political, cool, critical, intellectual, literary, or enthusiastic, zinesters and other creators don't wait for permission.  These self- or independent publications are not accountable to corporations, institutions, or commercial forces although a few are published by commercial forces, such as the Chime zine by the fashion company Gucci. The Zine Library consists primarily of zines found at specialized bookstores, zine fairs, and websites.

Being student centered is a goal of the Library, so we want to have students select zines as much as possible. We also want to to collect zines made by Pace students and to keep one print copy in the Library and one digitized copy in the Pace Digital Repository.
