History of fashion goes online

Archives of Vogue, Variety and others now available digitally
January 17, 2013

Now you can page through the history of fashion and entertainment online via the Concordia University Libraries web-based collections. The Vogue Archive and Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive are just two of the significant online resources newly acquired with funds made available through Concordia’s Academic Plan for 2011-16.

These important magazine collections provide a fascinating record of changes in the worlds of fashion and entertainment since the late nineteenth century. The Vogue Archive features high-resolution colour reproductions of the entire run of Vogue magazine from 1892 to the present; the Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive provides full-page reproductions of magazines from the film, media and entertainment industries from as far back as 1880, including Billboard, Variety, Spin, New Musical Express, The Stage and others.

These resources will be of special interest to researchers in Design, Film Studies, Communication Studies, and History, as well as to anyone interested in the history of fashion, theatre, film and music.

Concordia University Libraries are continually adding new electronic resources to their collections. To stay up-to-date with recent library purchases, check the What’s New section of the Concordia University Libraries web pages.
