Gale, part of Cengage Learning, and National Geographic have announced an agreement to provide an online archive of more than 100 years of National Geographic magazine. Available to libraries this spring, National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994 will include all issues of the magazine in a fully searchable and intuitive interface.
Also included in the more-than-100,000-page archive will be every photograph published in the magazine through 1994. Among the first to use color photography, National Geographic magazine is widely known to contain the highest quality photojournalism in the world, with each photograph allowing readers to visually explore the new worlds they are learning about. In addition to each page and photograph, the archive will include the detailed maps published by the magazine throughout its history. The maps help to provide context and reference for readers who are learning about unknown and often remote regions and cultures for the first time.

You can also learn more about the archive and other Gale products at the Gale booth (#2219) on the exhibit floor of the American Library Association Midwinter meeting in Dallas, Texas, Jan. 20-23.
