The library will be closed on Wednesday, June 19 in observance of Juneteenth. Gleeson Library encourages all individuals in the USF community to use this day to reflect on and actively engage in anti-racism work.

Gleeson Zine Library


Zines are do-it-yourself (DIY) publications on a variety of subjects, depending on the individual interests of the creators. Common topics include personal stories, art and photography, cultural criticism, and social commentary. Gleeson Zine Library shares the University of San Francisco's commitment to social justice movements and local community activism by collecting and loaning print zines that center BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ narratives, and own voices. We engage the USF community in educational, social, and scholarly activities, including classes and workshops. We encourage submissions from members of the USF community.


  • ​The Gleeson Zine Library is located on the 2nd floor in the South wing of the library.
  • Zines circulate to all members of the USF community with borrowing privileges for 30 days and may be renewed up to 3 times.
  • For questions about borrowing zines or your library account, contact Access Services.
