Scientific American (1845-2016) now available

All backfiles of Scientific American are now available to WU users online.

This popular science magazine was founded in 1845; it is the oldest continuously published magazine in the U.S. Up to 2009, 144 Nobel Prize Scientists had contributed 234 articles to Scientific American; there may be more now. Although WU libraries has paper volumes for most of these years and some of the public domain content (pre-1923) can be found online, it should be convenient to have the full run available to search, read and download from a single source.

For questions, contact Ask Us! or your subject librarian.
