The Anchor Archive uses its own customized thesaurus of subject terms (or keywords) to describe zines in our collection. We developed it between 2008-2013 because we wanted to use subject terms that were more accessible, current, and radical than standard subject thesauri such as Library of Congress Subject Headings. The Zine Subject Thesaurus is used by other zine libraries and zine collections around the world.
You can see a full list of subject terms used in the zine library catalogue and link to zines with those terms here. But if you want to see a partial list of terms with relationships (such as related terms and use/used for terms), you can open the PDF on this page.
The Anchor Archive is currently updating its thesaurus in collaboration with other zine librarians. Stay tuned for more information and get in touch if you want to get involved.
