Another collection of useful websites, this time with a focus on DIY research and various zine-related resources. Some of these websites helped me a lot when I was writing an article on feminist perzines and others keep being of use for me as a zine writer/reader. I’m sure you’ll find them interesting too! 🙂 Check out the previous “interesting stuff on the web” posts too.
Useful resources for research:
- Libgen: books! magazines! articles! comics! All at your disposal…
- Gutenberg Project: lots of free ebooks for which the copyright has expired
- Online newspapers can be found at Krantenarchief
- Academia.edu: share and download articles and research papers
- Bibliography of research papers on zines.
- This is pretty amazing: a comic book called “Hot Pursuit” about demystifying archival research for artists that you can download and print yourself.
- I wanted to mention Sci Hub too but the website seems to have a problem at the moment… hopefully soon restored because a world opened when I discovered that website, literally a world of research papers! All accessible for free thanks to a female hacker!
Useful resources for zinesters:
- How to make a zine – a kid-friendly guide!
- Tumblr page all about queer zines and related news
- Penfight distro has a lot of resources on their website including a newsletter, zine events in the UK, a community notice board (for zine trades, etc), and other zine-related resources (distros, places, podcasts). Basicly everything a zinester could wish for!
