The Vorhoff Library collects zines that focus on the narratives and experiences of women whose stories often go untold in mainstream society. Some examples of these are women in the service industry, members of the LGBT community, alternative voices in parenting, education, and politics, survivors of domestic abuse or rape, incarcerated women, single fathers, natural disaster survivors.  Along with these narratives are personal zines or “perzines” that relay stories of hope and struggle in the face of everyday challenges in the 21st century. Below is the current inventory of zines housed within the Nadine Vorhoff Library. For more information on the definition and history of zines, please visit our Biblioblog
