Labyrinth Collection

Identifier: BCC-004

Scope and Contents

The collection includes most volumes of this publication. The earliest dated volume was published in 1969; however, there are several earlier undated volumes (they are titled with volume numbers rather than year of publication, like all following volumes), which indicate that the Labyrinth began publication in the late 1960s. The collection begins with these early volumes and continues until the present. It should be noted that there were several periods in which the Labyrinth was not published – this appears to be mainly from 1982 - 1992 and 1997 – 2003. The collection also contains some additional materials relating to the Labyrinth, such as correspondence, publicity, and advertisements. There are electronic and paper copies of some issues. Digital-only production of the magazine started in 2018.

Language of Materials



The Labyrinth is a literary magazine published by the students of Bergen Community College. Each volume typically includes poetry, short fiction, essays, and artwork submitted by current students, and is usually published once a year. The Labyrinth Collection in the BCC Archives contains copies of the majority of this publication, from its beginnings in the late 1960s to the present.


The magazines have been arranged in chronological order. The date ranges are indicated on each box. Dividers have been placed between volumes to indicate any issues that are currently not included in the collection. For example, a divider has been placed between the 1971 volume and the 1973 volume, and has been labeled to show that 1972 is currently not part of the collection. The dividers also reflect the years that the Labyrinth was not published, as mentioned in the Scope and Content section.
