Please join us in congratulating the EFMP grantees!
Hi! I'm Erinma. I'm from Maryland and I am an Urban Studies major with a concentration in Africana Studies.
After at least eight years of trying to complete a run of Sassy magazine, we finally have all nine volumes on an oversize shelf in the Barnard Library!
It’s almost time for the Spring 2022 semester to come to a close, but we have some more BLAIS news and events to share before summer begins!
We're recognizing Urban Studies Professor Mary Rocco for her outstanding work on the Undesign the Redline project, as well as her many other collaborations with multiple BLAIS departments this year
We have circulating zine kits! They contain:
2 glue sticks
2 magazines or catalogs
8 extra fine markers in assorted colors
Plastic bone folder

As our Barnard community reconvenes after spring break, we bring you the April 2022 issue of @barnlib. Check out what events are available to you, in addition to news from staff, departments, and centers!
We added zines about grief, zine culture, work life, fat facts, weird roommates, and dating while married.
This week we added zines about a Canadian quarantining in Mexico, a summer of a historically straight women pursuing and being pursued by women, queering classics, dealing with a broken wrist, fatphobia and self love, raw and vegan cooking, and vintage clip art collages.
This addition provides a window into Shange’s creative process and the publishing industry, Shange's work as a teacher, and Shange as a sister, mother, daughter, and friend.
This week we're adding photography zines made by zine assistant Grace Li BC '24. The zines depict people, dogs, and scenes in Barcelona, Beijing, New Hampshire, and other locations.
This week we added zines about working in domestic violence shelters, eating disorder and other body issues, women traveling solo in South America, sex, sluttiness, sex work, feminism in Poland, witchcraft and elders, and Barnard Zine Club members writing and art on the theme of "return."
We added zines about life and work during the never ending pandemic, navigating US health insurance, Black sexuality, and trans resources in Seattle.
Though the temperatures are frigid, Barnard Library is abuzz with activity. Keep reading to hear about our many upcoming events, as well as news from many departments and centers!
We added zines documenting one artist's life in zines and experiencing racist microaggressions in her day to day, along with a nine-year-old girl's guide to cat-having and thoughts about delayed onset homosexuality.
This week we added zines about quarantine, chronic illnesses, tarot, Covid mourning, Covid parenting, mad zining, loving your own body, and going offline, and interviews with radical librarians and technologists.
