Many people don’t realise that the SRL has a large collection of zines in its collection. From amateur one off’s to more sophisticated, but still radical, serials they are a fascinating and exciting collection to have. They cover punk, feminism, music, politics, work and everything else under the sun.
As part of our digitisation process, we’re slowly putting them online. We’re hoping those interested in zines, fanzines and the like will be able to enjoy what we have available. Although our zines can’t be borrowed, if you come to ACE where the SRL and Autonomous Archive are based, you can browse, read and photocopy any that pique your interest.

SRL is delighted to announce a fresh batch of donations to our growing library. Last Thursday at our monthly open meeting we got a large donation from AK Press – one of the publishers here in Edinburgh we’re proud to support and recommend.

ACE, the centre where the Scottish Radical Library is based, has amassed an extraordinary collection of material over the decades. One particularly exciting group of documents are our “Protest Posters”, many from all over the world. There’s something exciting and immediate about a good poster. It hits you right between the eyes and provokes a reaction – either attraction or repulsion.
