Records for Fanzines

Dear colleagues,

I am working on a project that involves the use of a lot of printed fanzines. I can't find any mention of fanzines or zines in the support section for Zotero. I was wondering if anyone else who uses such materials could share how they classify fanzines - what "item type" they use - in Zotero? I usually prefer "journal article," but quite frequently I want to refer to the entire zine, which may only have a few, or even one, issues. When I use the firefox plugin from the records at the Riverside Eaton Collection - a huge archive of fanzines - it creates  "book" record. Sometimes I have, e.g. a circular with front and back or a typed manuscript, and I am inclined to file them as "document" even though in some way they are tied to e.g. apazines. Any thoughts?

thank you!

Jane
