Anchor Archive is housed at the Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax. I visited the Centre on a sunny Sunday afternoon in February. Every Sunday, Amanda and Zak, two librarians who are working on cataloguing the 2000+ books in the collection, can be found sitting on the couch hard at work on their computers. They have kept a blog about the process of creating the catalogue at http://blog.anchorarchive.ath.cx/. Sarah Evans, one of the founders of the library is at work reshelving returned zines.
