Search and Find Magazines on Google Book Search

On 12/9/2008, The Official Google Blog announced
that Google has partnered with publishers to begin
digitizing millions of articles from magazines as
diverse as the New York Magazine, Popular
Mechanics and Ebony.

Magazine articles located through Google Book
Search appear in full color and in their original
context (i.e., you can scroll forwards and
backwards to other articles in the same issue).

Google also plans to begin blending magazine results into
traditional search results. For now you can
restrict your Google Book Search to magazines by using the
advanced search function and selecting "Magazines"
under the Content options.
