Gale-Smithsonian Partnership’s Magazine Archive Goes Live

Earlier this year, Gale, part of Cengage Learning, announced a partnership with the Smithsonian Institution to create library and academic resources by digitizing some of the Smithsonian’s collections. The first product of that partnership, an archive for Air & Space magazine and Smithsonian magazine, was recently released. All back issues of the magazines are in digital form for the first time, and they are searchable using Gale’s graphing and term-clustering research tools.

Libraries can subscribe to Gale’s database to access the archive, allowing for cross-curricular and interdisciplinary opportunities for students and researchers.

The archive includes entire magazine issues complete with covers, advertisements, and images. The Smithsonian intends to provide access to all kinds of artifacts, and this archive is the first step in offering content that has never been available online. As the partnership continues, Gale plans to digitize more Smithsonian-owned materials such as books, personal papers, photographs, manuscripts, and other rare artifacts in its collection of 137 million objects.
