Palomar College has acquired the National Geographic magazine archive online from 1888 through 1994. Students and faculty may view full-color digital copies of every page of every issue, on campus or off.
Fascinating, well-researched articles, stunning photographic images, and iconic maps produced by the National Geographic Society on every topic and location imaginable have made this publication a valued cultural and educational artifact for over a century. Search for articles by topic, image, or even location!
The Library also has the complete collection of National Geographic magazine in print (1888 to the present) and on microfilm (1888-1997) at the San Marcos campus.
