National Geographic Magazine: online, just for you

When I say National Geographic what do you see? I bet the first image that comes to mind is a bright yellow border! You do not have to be an avid reader of this magazine to get a picture of it in your mind. When something becomes legendary, its reputation precedes it, and this is the case with National Geographic.

Christchurch City Libraries now offers you online access to the National Geographic Virtual Library which contains access to every article, map and photo in this publication. This library begins with the first issue in 1888 until the second most recent issue. I defy anyone to start browsing through the pages of beautiful National Geographic covers and not lose a few hours enjoying all the content there is on offer including:

  • Award winning articles on cultures, nature, science and the environment;
  •  High quality photojournalism (clever pictures that tell stories);
  •  Stunning cartography (nice maps);
  •  A huge feel good factor as you are reading something entertaining but also educational while helping support an organisation that encourages research and conservation!

You can access this product 24/7 from home or within libraries using your library and number and PIN through the Source or the library catalogue.

Prepare to be amazed, amused and inspired!!
