Gale Signs Agreement for National Geographic Magazine Archive

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, signed an agreement with the National Geographic Society to archive 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.

National Geographic Magazine has long been a leading global publication in empowering people to better understand the world in which we live, providing authoritative, unbiased content that addresses today's complex issues, while uncovering the wonders of our time. From the discovery of fossils of human ancestors by Richard Leakey in Kenya to polar exploration, archaeological finds of Maya and Inca cultures and Robert Ballard’s discovery of the wreckage of the <em>Titanic</em>, National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994 is an essential resource for scholars as well as a fascinating collection for general readers.

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 lifelike, authentic 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.
