I'm a college reference librarian by day and a zine librarian by (Thursday) night. I created this blog mainly to share links that can possibly be useful to people interested in issues pertaining to librarianship, gender studies, New York City, zines, and a whole bunch of other topics! Also, in case you were curious, my blog's name was inspired by Gertrude Stein's book "Everybody's Autobiography."
