State Library of Victoria Zine Collection
The State Library of Victoria has the largest public zine collection in Australia, approximately 5000 (June 2009). The collection focus is zines produced in Australia, however, occasional non-Australian zines have been acquired inadvertently.
Individual zines in the collection have not been catalogued on the Library's online public access catalogue (December 2009), aside from the limited number of zines that were acquired by legal deposit, largely before 2000; however, box lists are available listing titles in each box. Zines are filed by acquisition date, e.g. "1/7, June 2007", "2/7 2007" etc, as well as a separate running number on all boxes in the collection.
More recently the State Library has also initiated a similar 'blanket order' for Australian zines with Sticky, and has been the recipient of a number of small personal zine and organisational collections which has significantly extended the coverage of the zine collection backwards into the 1990s.
