Ebay Seller

Dr Beth is a major seller on eBay where she sells used media fanzines. She buys collections from people who are either done with their fanzines or from the estates of fans' families.

She often has information or chairs a panel at fan cons about what to do with your fanzine collection when it comes to writing your will or trust; her idea is to save zine collections that might otherwise be destroyed by families with no idea what to do with them.

Interviews

She also participated in the Media Fandom Oral History Project, see Media Fandom Oral History Project Interview with Doctor Beth (2007).
