A Growing Collection Through Your Donations
We've receieved several donations over the last months that have dearly added to the CRLL's offerings. Where once we had only one, now the second copy of many more zines resides on our shelves. Insurance is a very good thing!
All donors go on our Donor List. I've had stickers made to commemorate each gift; they're placed inside the front cover. As of today, the list cites only new (since August 2011) donors, but I'm compiling a historical list and will add names along.
Please consider the Library should you have zines to donate. There are still several on The Wish List, but I'd like to have two copies of every zine. Just having one makes me nervous! Contact me with your list of available titles, and I'll check our current inventory. The Library accepts other BatB memorabilia as well - newsletters, flyers, correspondence, autographs, photographs - anything you feel adds to our fandom's history-keeping.
Updates to the QFER and the Zine Database
You might have noticed some zines still have no descriptions and some data tables are incomplete as to rating, character pairings, and season. Thanks to the efforts of JoAnn Baca and Aliset, the QFER updating team, many gaps have been filled in. There's more to do, but good progress has been made.
Note there are three tabs beneath each zine title. More Info offers a short description of the zine's focus and some artist information. Data Sheet will give you the author's name, rating, character focus, page length and date of publication. Comments are reviews left by borrowers. Too many of these are blank! Please take a moment to share your thoughts.
My 2013 goal is to complete the data tables and to add artist information to each zine description. No small task, still I promise to keep after it until it's done!
