Zines at the Library of Congress

Zine Publishers, Distros & Libraries

While zines can sometimes be acquired via zine distributors, the most common method for zine acquisition is to acquire the zine directly from the creator/publisher, as it is generally unlikely to be available elsewhere. Zines are almost always produced and distributed by one individual, or a small group, and therefore zines must be acquired directly from them. This list is not comprehensive, but is meant to provide a starting point for locating independent and regional zine vendors.
