The first Zine Librarians (un)Conference was held in Seattle, Washington in March 2009 at Zine Archive and Publishing Project (ZAPP), to great success. A mini zine librarians conference was held last summer at the Portland Zine Symposium. The second bi-annual (un)conference is to be held July 8-9, 2011 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
