Books and Now Magazines Too!

We’ve talked about the Google Book Search and its partnership with libraries – you know the one where Google is scanning millions of books and making them searchable. All in all, a pretty sweet project.

Well, they haven’t stopped with just books. They announced last week that they’re working with magazine publishers to digitize their backfiles and making them freely available. They’ve got titles like the Vegetarian Times, Jet and my personal favorite, Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. If you use the advanced book search, you can limit your results to only magazine articles. You can then view the content as it was originally published, ads and all.

Of course, the University Library has tons of magazines, journals and newspapers for your research, both online and in print. Just use the Journal Holdings List to find a title’s availability.

Thanks to Renee Pfeifer-Luckett in the Marketing Department for the story!

I'm the library guy. No, seriously, I'm the only male reference & instruction librarian. I also have the pleasure of serving several campus committees, the Academic Staff Assembly and the Chancellor's Task Force on LGBT Issues, among others.
