The Pulp Magazines Project. Patrick Belk, Nathan Madison: 2011. <http://pulpmags.org/>
The first generation of cooperative, open-access libraries were text-based transcriptions like Project Gutenberg. In the past 20 years digital imaging equipment has improved while the price for it has plummeted. The creation of digital storage/server operations with capacity measured in gigabytes and terabytes (soon in terms of petabytes) makes possible the capture and presentation of image-based files that previously were possible only on microfilm.
The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital collection of pulp magazine content “for the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century’s most influential print culture forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine.”
