Even Magazines can be found now through Google Book Search

After books, newspapers and photos, Google Book Search has now included magazines into the list of media that can be rummaged through online. For nowthere is talk about 10 magazines (shortly the number is supposed to rise to more than one hundred) that can be found and read through. Among others thefollowing are already available: Jet, Popular Science, Bulletin Of Atomic Scientists, Prevention, Runner’s World, New York Magazine and last but not least Ebony.
I thought to let my readers know about this feature as for me it would have been particularly helpful if it had existed about two years ago when I did research in Italy for my thesis (on Stokely Carmichael and the Rhetoric of Black Power). Even though my University had a North American Studies library that was well furnished, an online availability of articles would have been really time saving.
Since I found a very interesting article on Carmichael in Ebony during my research in the aforementioned library I was eager to scroll through it online. Unfortunately I could not find the entire issue (September 1966) and had to discover that it’s not the only issue missing. I hope its only a question of time. Please do let me know when you see it online!
