Just last month, Google announced that it was bringing the massive LIFE Magazine photo archive online. Two million photos are already uploaded, and another 8 million will be coming online soon.
This week, they’ve made a new announcement. The upshot? Google has reached an agreement with magazine publishers to digitize their historical archives. This will bring millions of articles to the web, and you’ll be able to access them through Google Book Search. Old media keeps coming over to new media.
Among the titles, you’ll find New York Magazine, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, Mother Jones, Runners World, Ebony, Men’s Health, Vegetarian Times and more.
PS Google has also posted the top search terms of 2008. It’s a window into the Zeitgeist. Have a look.
