Google Book Search for Magazines

Google recently added magazines to its popular Google Book Search. Its partnership with publishers began with 10 full magazine archives and is now growing at a steady rate. The archives are in full-color, page-to-page, in a format that is easy to browse. As more magazines are scanned, Google will incorporate them into their standard search results.

To access the magazine archive, go to Google Book Search and select "advanced book search" on the right. Limit the content to magazines and start searching. Click on your chosen title, and select "browse all issues" on the right column to see a thumbnail of all issues included in the archive.

Google has not yet published a list of titles included in their archive, but you can view a partial list at the following blog.
