Forgotten Magazines

In my last post I blogged about the great magazines available through RBDigital. Today I want to tell you about a resource for magazines that is often forgotten about- Badgerlink!

Everyone who lives in Wisconsin has access to Badgerlink. It is a great place to find journal articles, but they also have some popular magazines. The people from Badgerlink have created a list of those popular titles. The interface isn’t as nice as RBDigital BUT you you can access magazine from further back in time. And they have…

Badgerlink has People magazine! I love my celebrity news. Once you click on the link, you will be taken to a list that shows all the issues that are available. If you want to see the most recent issue- click on August 2020, and then click on Vol. 94 Issue 8 – 8/24/2020. You will then see a list of all the articles. When you find an article you would like to read click on PDF full text or HTML Full text. I prefer the PDF view. You could look at articles back to 1974. They are also searchable, so you could find all the articles about any celebrity. Just click on “Search within this publication”, and put in “Chris Hemsworth.” You’re welcome!

Here are some other hidden gems:

A monthly lifestyle magazine covering fashion, beauty, entertainment and culture. They have full issues going back to 1992.

Highlights magazine for kids is filled with stories, games, puzzles, riddles, science experiments, craft projects and interactive entertainment! They have issues going back to 1993.

Articles on hunting, fishing, conservation, camping, boating, recreational vehicles and products, and related humor. The have issues going back to 2001.

The covers on these magazines are classic. You can look at issues going back to 1931. It’s fun to look at what was happening the year that you were born.
