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.
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.
