Fantastic news from DocMovies:

Variety has launched a preview of its digital archives featuring highlights of issues from the 1960-65 period.

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 ?
