The MHDL catalog currently includes 2,901,493 pages of digitized books and magazines from the histories of film, broadcasting, and recorded sound. That's quite a large number, and we hope to keep it continually growing! Check out this page to see items that have recently been added to the MHDL collections.

To determine which materials are available for digitization, we check the U.S. copyright status of all titles. We reviewed every copyright renewal for serials (magazines) published from 1923 to 1950, and for titles after those dates, we search the copyright records for the status of the major publications published from 1951 to 1963. The copyrights for nearly all of these media industry, fan and technical publications were not renewed, and those pre-1964 works are now in the public domain.

As a non-profit initiative, your support is what enables us to keep building our collections. Please consider making a donation to support the Media History Digital Library.
