Profile Information

History of the OCAD University Zine Library

The OCAD U Zine Library was launched on November 14th, 2007 by artist Alicia Nauta, while she was a student of OCAD U's Printmaking program. 

She started the collection “to inspire people… educate and entertain” as well as “to make people realize anyone can make a zine.” She was hoping to create more personal connections between zine makers at OCAD U and within the library by allowing students access to “zines made by people they know, and opportunities to create their own work to be seen by other students.”[1] 

She started the collection, developed its organizational scheme and organized several events to promote and support the collection. In 2009, the collection moved from the Dorothy H. Hoover Library to the newly opened Learning Zone, under the management of Learning Zone Librarian, Victoria Sigurdson. Marta Chudolinska, an intern at the Library, worked with Alicia in her last year at OCAD to learn about the management of the collection so that Alicia's work could be carried forward after her graduation for many years to come. 

In 2010, Marta moved into the role of Learning Zone Librarian and has continued to expand the collection and its classification system and organize dynamic programming with the help of the OCAD U Zine Collective. Marta and Victoria, now Head of Visual Resources and Special Collections, are collaborating on bringing the OCAD U Zine Library Catalogue online so that this incredible collection can be more accessible to our students, faculty, researchers and the general public.
