Here are some of the notable new additions to the Internet Archive from February 2022. (Logging in might be required to borrow certain items.)
Notable new collections:
We’ve been reorganizing some of the items uploaded by our users, and these collections of magazines struck us as particularly interesting:
- The Planetary Report: 216 issues of a scientific magazine all about planets.
- Film and Cinema Magazines: Magazines dealing with film, movies, cinema and related subjects, including film making.
- Hobby Magazines: Magazines dedicated to hobbies.
This month we’ve added books in more than 20 languages. Here are a few good ones to start with:
