Search Magazines With Google Book Search

Google announced a partnership with publishers to begin digitizing millions of articles from magazines such as New York Magazine, Popular Mechanics, and Ebony to be included in Google's Book Search results.

Google hopes through their partnership they'll be able to bring more magazine archives and current magazines online. Google says, "Over time, as we scan more articles, you'll see more and more magazines appear in Google Book Search results. Eventually, we'll also begin blending magazine results into our main Google.com search results, so you may begin finding magazines you didn't even know you were looking for. For now you can restrict your search to magazines we've scanned by trying an advanced search."

You can search for magazines through Google Book Search. Try queries like [obama keynote convention], [hollywood brat pack] or [world's most challenging crossword] and you'll find magazine articles alongside books results. Magazine articles are tagged with the keyword "Magazine" on the search snippet.
