Founded in 1966, the Little Maga/Zine Collection at the San Francisco Public Library documents the alternative press of the San Francisco Bay Area and its attending influence on the cultural, social and political life of San Francisco. Little magazines and zines form the core of the collection, covering the 1940s onward. A selection of little mags and zines that have been influential or connected with San Francisco in some way may also be found here. Ephemera is collected as well. The collection holds over 3,860 items and is considered one of the most important collections of its kind in a public library.

Located in the Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts & Special Collections Center on the sixth floor of the Main Library, the collection is open to the public Tuesday through Thursday: 10-6; Friday: 12 Noon-6: Saturday: 10–6; Sunday: 12 Noon– 6. Closed Monday. No appointment is necessary.
