Google magazine search


Earlier this week, the official Google blog announced that they are expanding Google Book Search to include magazines.

According to the blog: "Are you a baseball history fanatic? Try a search for [hank aaron pursuing babe ruth's record] 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 color and in its original context, just as you would in the printed magazine." Read the whole article

Pretty kewl for a few reasons: I love researching stuff online, so this is another great resource. And, since I wasn't around when Life magazine was in its heyday, I am really looking forward to surfing their old issues.
