[EVA] Where to find back-issues of Animerica, Newtype, etc?

Much has been said of back issues of Animerica with interviews, even just stuff with the English dub cast, much less the Newtype Anno interviews.
Where does one find back-issues of these? Certain major libraries hang onto popular magazines for a time, I've checked and the universities in my area don't (actually, my university anime clubroom has a cabinet that was locked and then when we were transferring all the old VHS tapes to DVD, we found it was FULL of NewType issues and old anime magazines from the 1990's, but few were from when Eva was coming out)

Tomino is quite critical with the whole generation that birthed Eva.
Recently, there was a film festival here in Italy and Tomino, as well as other big names, was invited. They had this round table where they would be asked questions to answer in turns. IIRC, Yamaga and other Gainax/Khara staffers were there, and at one point this particular bunch of authors said they didn't care for the expectations of the public or even the appreciation of the contents of their works, for all they cared about was making anime stressing the elements they liked in the ones they grew up with (and if you're wondering what those may be, try tracing the points in common in Gainax productions from Mahoromatic up to now).
This apparently scandalized Tomino and others of his generation, but the festival was so alternative and had gotten so little attention that the event only got reported when a radio station I was listening to interviewed one of the curators.
