Suddenly, a lot more periodicals are showing up in Google Book Search.
In advanced search you can even choose if you want to search ‘books’, ‘magazines’, or both. And in the search results, periodical results show up labelled ‘Magazine’ instead of ‘Book’.
This includes actual individual article metadata–almost always with fulltext!
So Google ‘books’ now has a significant amount of article-level fulltext in it.
Did I miss an announcement somewhere? Anyone have more info on this? Are these just materials scanned from the library program? But they are mostly popular magazines; and the GBS Settlement with the publishers didn’t, I don’t think, cover any magazine/periodical content, right?
