Hi, Apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong place.

Are there any plans to scan early copies of Rolling Stone? I'm keen to research areas of late-1960s and 1970s social history that either weren't covered by mainstream media or weren't given the depth of cover that Rolling Stone encouraged their journalists to go into.

I know there's already a scanned Rolling Stone archive available at certain libraries but my local library doesn't have access.

Many thanks

Someone tried but corporate greed got in the way; New Yorker's done the same thing in Periodicals. The only things we have access to are RS anthologies and coffee table books in the lending library:

Hi, Many thanks for the quick reply, I did wonder if that was the case. RS books have some great articles but are nothing like having sight of the real thing again. Guess I should have held onto my old copies!

I urge you to ask around in the Grateful Dead forum at the link below.
A. There may be collectors there who have not digitized their materials.
B. They like to reminisce about that time period.

As someone who's mid 60's to mid 70's social circles were not accurately covered in the mainstream media I wish you luck. I will say that the Kent State murders caused many of us to become reclusive and still are a bit wary.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, I remember Kent State very clearly, the complete sense of disbelief and outrage it caused. I'll do as you suggest and drop by the Grateful Dead forum.
