I think she lives near London.
I've just messaged her to see if they are still available.

It was just the thought of them being thrown away that did for me. I know of at least two fans who have got rid of theirs because they needed the room...if only they had let me know.....

Good for you, Sue. If it wasn't for the fans there might have been nothing left!

That's great, Sue, thank you!
I wish people would try and donate to local libraries rather than throw such things out, especially fanzines which are rare and unique.
There's a collection of B7 fanzines in Iowa University library, so that they at least be preserved for history.

So tell us more about this - I have lots of B7 zines that I wonder if I'd pay to have them moved with me back across the pond (when that happens - unknown when).
I've tried to sort of give some away at B7 gatherings (like Bristol Beer+B7) & been met with.... disinterest, mostly.

You say LIBRARIES would take them? Like, Public Libraries???

Yeah, I know about that - half a thought is some US megafan was doing some graduate work regarding them... I can't see my own institute (I work at a University) Library wanting B7 zines.... I'd be happy to be wrong about that!

Well, Winnie, I haven't been to the Bristol meet, but if you want to give some away in my direction....

I'm not sure how that works in GB but we've been donating to our local town library for a couple of years, mostly children books after our children grew up. We just bring it to the library, sign the paper, and they take it all in.

That's the books though, not sure about fanzines. But I'd imagine if a college does media studies and teaches media courses then college library would be happy to take in zines, why not? Fanzines might require special handling and indexing, but I'd ask a librarian about that.

And to have a collection at some library in England would be much more convenient than in Iowa: more potential fans and could be reached in couple of hours on the bus from most places.

I work in a library in England and I am sorry to say this kind of collection would be rejected. Even if you found one that would take them in you are then faced with 2 more problems: theft from a public library is not uncommon (quite the contrary); plus libraries in the UK are under such pressure for various reasons mostly financial that you could never be certain of their safekeeping. We have been getting rid of special collections and not always finding a good home for them. A specialised library - if you can find one - would be your best bet.

So...it might be an idea for me to clear out one of the bedrooms and set up my zine collection properly...hmmmmmmm

How fab! I've loved libraries since I was a youngling and our local one was a source of Narnia books, and the ancient myths of Greece, Rome, Egypt etc re-told for children by Enid Blyton. The children's section seemed enormous to me at the time - no doubt if I ever return there, it will have 'shrunk'.

I now frequent the library in the Hertfordshire town where I now live - in fact, I'm going there this very morning. It's a wonderful place, and I'm so pleased it hasn't fallen foul of local authority cuts the way so many other libraries have done. I very rarely buy books these days - shortage of funds and shelf space being the main reasons - and rely heavily on the library for my book club's choices and other recommended reads.

Littlesue, if you could become custodian of B7 zines as Gary is of B7 costumes, you would be doing a fantastic service for fandom! Maybe a permanent home and display can be found for all these precious things?

There are museums of all sorts across the country. Worth a thought or two.

I used to work on a mobile library, in rural areas people used to bring their ferrets on board, on leads! very Summer wine..Bacon bookmarks...money left inside dust jackets...
Got a copy of Chronicle recently old Who/Blake zine.

A man returned a book as if all was ok but when I opened it up (cos it felt a bit bulky) it had most of a curry in it. Why did he think we wouldn't notice? Anyway that has got nowt to do with B7. Unless it was a space curry...

I would love to see an organised programme of digitising old zines so they can be properly preserved. Ideally this would involve reproducing them wholesale (as PDF and some e-book format) and as text only for addition to archive sites.

I know copyright is an issue but given we are playing with other peopleís characters Iíve always thought it should be shorter for fannish works. Then there are those who are no longer with us who we canít get permission from but who wrote and sang and drew for the enjoyment of their fellow fans (us).
 
Joe Dredd
PS there are a number of B7 zines preserved at the National Library of Australia. Iím having problems copying the link (still posting from my phone) but if you go to catalogue.nla.gov.au you can search for ďBlakeís 7 periodicalsĒ to find them.
 
Joe Dredd
PPS If Google can go into the libraries of the world and make full copy scans of books and get away with it, despite all the legal limitations on fair-use copying, then surely we can do the same.
