Google announces that its Book Search engine now includes magazine
archives in its results, in full-color, page-to-page, browseable

Are you a baseball history fanatic? Try a search for [hank aaron
catching babe] on Google Book Search. You'll find a link to a 1973
Ebony article about Hank Aaron, written as he closed in on Babe Ruth's
original record for career home runs. You can read the article in full

Other available titles include Popular Science, New York Magazine, and
the more obscure Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. Results from magazines
appear alongside Book search results, and they can be difficult to

can type in yourself, from the Advanced Book Search page you can ask
for results from magazines only.
