Google announced today that Life Magazine is now available in Google Book Search. You can browse over 1,860 issues, covering the years from 1936 to 1972; or use Advanced Search to limit content to Magazines and enter “Life” in the Title box. This is in addition to all the other magazine fun in Google Books.
A search of Magazines with the phrase “Stanford University” and title of Life reveals plenty of gems, including a photo spread of Stanford basketball legend Hank Lusetti and a 1971 article about the famous Zimbardo Prison Experiments.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a link for embedding Magazine content, as there is for some book content (hence the screen shot).
