"File Under Other"--Cataloging Zines

The Boston Globe offers an interesting story that looks at the problems of collecting non-standard materials. Zine librarian Jenna Freedman is featured.

There is no preexisting librarians' code pertaining to how one should handle a document that includes a free prophylactic; Freedman stows the entire zine, ephemera and all, along with a rigid, acid-free cardboard backing in a plastic sleeve designed for comic books.
