Fanzines Archive

I've been thinking about fanzines ever since mortonhall and narrelle were commenting on a post I made last week. They're not something I've really had a chance to read or even had access to and they are very clearly an important part of fannish history. I hear so many tales about different ones and I would love to be able to get my hands on some and have a read.

I was wondering if it was a good idea to maybe scan old fanzines and archive them digitally on ASif! I have no idea about the logistics of this or whether owners of fanzines would be prepared to let us do that or whether anyone but me has an even vague interest in reading them. But I kinda like to preserve history and I would be interested in such a project.

What do you think?
