The National Geographic Magazine Archives database provides access to over 100 years of this popular journal. You can enjoy thousands of breathtaking photographs and articles. The archive begins with the very first issue published in October 1888 and runs to 1994. The issues are presented in their entirety, including all articles and advertising.
You can search for articles by keyword, subject, country, and time period. There is also a separate search feature for just the amazing images.
When reading an issue, there are some useful viewing options, such as zooming in, full screen view, and printing. Another great feature is that you can create an account and then save articles for viewing next time that you login.

All you need is your library card.
