Language of Materials



The Art & Design Liaison Librarian is the selector for the Zine Collection. The Art & Design Liaison Librarian collaborates with the Archivist and Head of Access Services to maintain the collection. New zines are processed in the Archives and finding aids are made available in ArchivesSpace. An inventory of the Zine Collection is conducted annually by the Access Services Department. Student work must be submitted by a sponsoring faculty member. George Fox Zines will be digitized and made available in the Digital Commons. The selection of materials for the collection from items received as gifts will be governed by the same criteria that govern the selection of purchased items. The library reserves the right to dispose of duplicate and unwanted material as it sees fit, unless prior arrangements have been made. George Fox libraries will not be responsible for a monetary statement to the donor for tax purposes; however, a gift acknowledgment form can be provided to the donor.
