Call for Submissions: Archives 101 Zine

The Los Angeles Archivists Collective (LAAC) is soliciting submissions for our first “Archives 101” zine, which will be distributed at the LA as Subject Archives Bazaar (October 17, 2015). The zine will also be available via our website as a PDF.

Submissions can focus on any aspect of archives, but here are some questions that might help you get started:

  • What are archives?

  • What does an archivist do?

  • Why are you an archivist?

  • Why do archives matter?

  • What is your favorite Los Angeles archive, archival collection, or item and why?

  • Favorite archival resources?

  • Tips on finding/accessing collections?

  • Tips on DIY preservation?

  • Favorite archives related books/movies/TV shows?

We welcome written submissions of 500 words or less, as well as illustrations, photographs, and other artwork that can be published in zine form. The deadline for submissions is September 23, 2015. Submissions can be anonymous, or feel free to include your name, handle, etc.
