Re: Open source access to old journals? Koveleskie, Judith 01 Mar 2011 18:46 UTC

If you have a current subscription to Harper's, you should have access to their online archives.   It is password protected for one user, but better than nothing.   I have found wonderful old articles for our students.   For example, someone doing research about A Christmas Carol got an article on Christmas written by Dickens.

Sorry, can’t find open access to any of these titles (if somebody else can, please let the list know!)  If you’re looking for Harper’s Weekly (the big illustrated magazine), you can get bits and pieces here:

Google Books has some scanned popular magazines:

They do have Life back to 1936, if that’s at all helpful.

Good luck!

Anyone aware of open source access to old journals: Ladies Home Journal, Harpers, Good Housekeeping, Better Homes and Gardens?? We are routinely hit by students requesting articles from 1900’s for historical research – any hints greatly appreciated.
