zines in process

If you get a patron query about a holdings message like this one, "In process. Ask for help at the Reference Desk." you can attempt to find the zine yourself and/or refer the question to me.

If you choose the former path, I'm sorry to tell you that there are multiple places the zine could be:
  1. In one of the two cabinets (monographs and serials) above our mailboxes.
  2. In the book truck in my office, which has 3 alphabetical runs of zines.
  3. In the cabinet above my desk, shelved Z to A.
While we're on the topic of finding elusive zines, the archives downstairs is incomplete. Many archives zines are in 207 awaiting abstracting. Our zines assistant has promised to organize and label them so as to make them more accessible to the rest of us.
