Google Book Search Now Book and Magazine Search

Google announced yesterday that they would now be including magazine archives in Google Book Search. More from the Google Blog:

Today, we’re announcing an initiative to help bring more magazine archives and current magazines online, partnering with publishers to begin digitizing millions of articles from titles as diverse as New York Magazine, Popular Mechanics, and Ebony.

You can search for magazines through Google Book Search…Magazine articles are tagged with the keyword “Magazine” on the search snippet.

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 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.

Any one have any ideas for how to explain to our kids what card catalogues were?
