In response to this Google Blog post, and last night’s episode of Uncontrolled Vocabulary, I’m on a quest to get a list of magazine titles out of Google. Here’s my opening salvo sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, the feedback address for the Google blog. Please feel free to help me out by sending your own e-mail to Google.
Speaking for myself and many other librarians we love the fact that you’re now including magazines in Google Book Search. However, it would be very useful for us if there was a list of indexed titles available. Does such a list exist online and if so where? If not, to whom would we direct such a request?
