Zines in the Library

The Library is now host to two great zine collections:

  • our own Zine library, which you can search using Library Search
  • and the Salford Zine Library - a collection we are delighted to be holding until November 2023.

You can find both collections on the ground floor of the Clifford Whitworth Library - head towards the laptop loans section and look for signs to the zines.

Salford University Library Zine Collection

We have recently created a Zine collection which covers a diverse array of topics. Please call in to the Library and take a look through the collection - we're sure you'll find something of interest.

Want to add your own zine?

Why not create your own zine and add it to our collection? If you'd like some advice on how to make a zine, we're running 'zine maker' workshops, but you can submit a zine without attending a workshop.

Want to request a new zine?

Use the Ask for a new library item form to let us know if there is a zine that you'd like to see us add to our collection.  

Salford Zine Library

The Salford Zine Library is a unique archive of self-published materials which seeks to preserve and provide access to zines from around the world, as well as promoting zines and DIY culture through workshops, exhibitions, and other events. More information is available on the Salford Zine Library website.

If you have any queries relating to the Salford Zine Library's collection, please contact salfordzinelibrary@googlemail.com and the Salford Zine Library team will be happy to help.

We are only displaying a fraction of the Salford Zine Library collection. To arrange to see some material that is currently in storage, please contact Reis Tobolski (R.Tobolski@salford.ac.uk). Please note that the Zines are for reference only and cannot be taken out of the Library.
