Finding Magazines Through Google Book Search

One of Google's longstanding missions has been "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." In a blog post from the Official Google Blog, Google has expanded its Google Book Search to incorporate magazine articles into this specialized online collection. Some titles include Ebony, New York Magazine, Popular Science, Vegetarian Times, and more.

To search specifically for articles from magazines, access the Advanced Book Search page and limit your search to magazines:

Once you find a title, you can explore the individual issues withing a specific set of years, click on any given cover, browse through the contents just as you would if you had the magazine in your hands, and peruse the magazine page by page, search through a specific issue, and more. While this collection is not complete, Google plans to add more digitized images to this archive as time goes on.

Remember that if you cannot find a specific magazine or issue, you can still rely on the Magazines & Newspapers Center, and we'll be happy to help you.
