Research Resource: Magazines Join Google Books

Google announced earlier this month that they now have online an archive of various magazines’ content.   This is just the first iteration of an initiative that will bring online millions of page of magazine content.  The initiative is being carried out with the cooperation of publishers.

The magazines are searchable through Google Book Search and eventually will turn up in regular Google searches.

Those who research African-American history will be interested to know that Jet and Ebony are in the first group of magazines to be digitized and are online now.

This is the third major Google announcement this fall. The first was the addition of newspaper content; the second was the acquisition of the LIFE magazine photo-archives.

I’ve tried the magazine search and it is satisfactory.  From my viewpoint, however, I would like to see a mechanism to segregate magazine searches from book searches.

    Thanks for the information. I was able to get a listing of articles about my great great uncle.
