Full-Text Magazines Online

Google Books has a number of magazines available for viewing online, which you'll find if you use the Advanced Book Search. Up until recently, there was no way to browse a list of all of the magazines by title. Thankfully, that's no longer the case. You can limit your browse to see only magazines that allow for full viewing (versus just previews/excerpts). Be aware, however, that the years available for viewing may be limited. What you'll need to do is click on the title you're interested in, then click on the Browse all issues link. You'll then get a listing of what issues are available, broken down by decade tabs. So if I want to browse all the online issues of Vegetarian Times, and scroll down to the Browse all issues section, I'll see that they have issues spanning the 80s, 90s and 2000s, the latest being May 2000.
