Reference: Media History: Old Film Journals and Mags Now Searchable for Everyone via Lantern Database, Over 800,000 Pages Available
Lantern is the new search interface from the award winning Media History Project Digital Library.
Film history nerds (students and scholars surely among them), it’s time to get it excited. The holdings of The Media History Digital Library are now able to be searched thanks to a project called Lantern.
Eric Hoyt, Carl Hagenmaier, and Wendy Hagenmaier first tried to get search functionality for the materials that were apart of the Media History Digital Library in 2011, and Hoyt later used the institutional support of his employer, the University of Wisconsin–Madison [Media History Digital Library and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Communication Arts] to facilitate the process.
