A favorite zine of librarians, run for many years by Marvin Scilken. Known for its determinedly simple graphic design (is it retro if it never became modern?), the "how I run my library good" rag has been the Everything of libraries.

(It's also one of my steadiest outlets for selling crossword puzzles -- custom-made with library-related themes, of course).

U*L is now run by Mitch Freedman, the American Library Association President for 2002-2003. It's no longer typed by hand on an old typewriter, and cut and paste are just keystrokes these days, but its design remains simple.
