Fantastic news from DocMovies:
Variety is in the process of scanning every issue of Variety and Daily Variety from 1910 to the present to create a searchable digital archive that will offer detailed chronicle of showbiz’s history and evolution.
The full-page scanning process will allow readers to see entire pages, including advertisements.
The full archive is expected to be available by early next year as a paid offering via Variety.com, with licenses available for libraries and other institutions.
Why isn’t it next year already ?
