Zines at NVC: Quick Resources

Submitting Zines

The NVC Zine Library accepts all student, faculty, and community submissions! 

We ask that  zines meet the following criteria:

  1. The zine is a reproduction not an original (i.e. pieces aren't taped or glued on)
  2. The submitter is the person who made the zine (so they can grant permission for it to be collected, cataloged, and checked out by library users).

Steps for submitting:

  1. Either email PDF copy of the zine to rrodriguez679@alamo.edu, OR give a hard copy to the Circulation Desk with a note, Attention: Rose 

Printing and Layout Help

Below are some resources for setting up a basic 8.5 x 11 folded booklet zine.

Printing 

  • The library does not have a photocopier. To copy a cut and paste zine, scan it on the flatbed scanner, email it to yourself OR save it to a USB flash drive and then hop on a computer and print it with your GoPrint account.
  • If your zine is a standard booklet made from an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half with the text in a landscape orientation you will want to print it double sided and select flip on the short edge. This will keep your pages from printing upside down. 
  • If you need assistance with printing contact Rose Rodriguez, rrodriguez679@alamo.edu

  • Zine kits- available for in library use checkout, these include gluesticks, scissors, tape, and colored pencils.
