UBC library has a significant collection of little magazines (small press literary magazines), most of which are held in Rare Books and Special Collections. Little magazines, or small magazines, published experimental and non-mainstream writings produced by relatively unknown authors. These magazines were usually not published with the intention of making a profit and were published irregularly. This collection includes not only magazines produced in British Columbia, but also includes most of the important Canadian titles.
