Maclean's introduces 110-year archive
Maclean's magazine has debuted a new online service called the "Digital Archives." The subscription-based service offers access to approximately 100,000 articles from 3,400 issues of the magazine dating back 110 years. The archive allows users to create customized collections of content or to browse articles on specific topics or people. The service, located at <http://www.macleans.ca/archives>, is being introduced with a free 30-day trial.
"This initiative would not have been possible without the support of several libraries and avid Maclean's readers, who sent in old copies of the magazine dug out from dresser drawers and cottage bookshelves," said Mark Stevenson, editor-in-chief of Maclean's. "With Maclean's Digital Archives, Canadians will be able to experience history once again while enjoying some of the great work by Canada's leading journalists and writers."
Maclean's is published by Rogers Media of Toronto.
