Revisiting Foundations – Code of Ethics

As a new school year begins, we thought it would be a perfect time to revisit our foundations in the Zine Librarians Code of Ethics. This document (and zine) was first drafted in 2014 at the Zine Librarians (un)Conference in Durham, NC. The Code of Ethics was written to establish a set of core values that inform and guide the work of zine librarians. These values are openly shared in order to strengthen communication and build trust within the zine community. It is expected to continually change and grow as the needs of the community evolves.

The Zine Librarians Code of Ethics was created by Heidy Berthoud, Joshua Barton, Jeremy Brett, Lisa Darms, Violet Fox, Jenna Freedman, Jennifer LaSuprema Hecker, Lillian Karabaic, Rhonda Kauffman, Kelly McElroy, Milo Miller, Honor Moody, Jude Vachon, Madeline Veitch, Celina Williams, and Kelly Wooten.
