I agree with Dan.  The problem is that scanning single pages of bound  
publications is unbelievably boring and time-consuming, especially if  
you have a busy life and a family.  (That's one reason I haven't  
posted my own zine efforts online, for example.)  I definitely think  
Lizzie or some other motivated archivist should do it, though!
