A trial of Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive is available through 7/7/13. This digital archive from ProQuest documents behind-the-scenes activities of the music, film, and entertainment industries. By providing the complete runs of major trade and consumer magazines, from their inception to 2000, it arms students and researchers with the primary source material needed to develop a contextual understanding of the entertainment industry as it evolved over the 20th century. It is ideal for scholars studying:
- The economics of the entertainment industry
- Production, marketing and reception of films or music albums
- Factors surrounding the emergence of subcultures like punk, two-tone or grunge
- Culture, politics and social change in dynamic eras such as the 1960s.
Each magazine can be browsed cover-to-cover in full-page, full-text format. Users are able to search for original reviews, interviews, industry news, listings, charts and features relating to the full range of popular media using advanced search and retrieval functionality.
This library resource is available to unlimited users via networked computers on the MSU campus in Bozeman and via the proxy server: http://www.lib.montana.edu/resources/item/591.
