Google Adds Magazine Search in Google Book Search

Dec 12, 2008

Google announced an initiative to help bring more magazine archives and current magazines online, partnering with publishers to begin digitizing articles from New York Magazine, Popular Mechanics, and Ebony. Users can now search for magazines through Google Book Search and can read an article in full color and in its original context, just as they would in the printed magazine. They can also click on "Browse all issues" to view issues from across the decades. Over time, as Google scans more articles, users will see more and more magazines appear in Google Book Search results. Eventually, Google will begin blending magazine results into search results.
