PBB: Complete National Geographic Article Abstracts

Do you have The Complete National Geographic installed on your computer, but wished you could integrate it with the searching power of Logos? Now you can! I’ve worked hard to compile a PBB (or whatever we’re calling it in L4) of abstracts for (nearly) every article of National Geographic ever printed. I did this using the abstracts available from http://magazine-back-issues.com (a site that lets you purchase print copies of back issues of many magazines). Unfortunately, they don’t have 100% abstracts available. Specifically, issues before 1900 were not available (NatGeo started in 1888), and some of the issues in the most recent decade have only titles of articles available and not abstracts. But even still, the list is pretty exhaustive and so I hope it will give you benefit like it does me!

(each decade of articles is in a separate .docx file, so you will need to attach them all when compiling the personal book in Logos – this can be still be done creating a single personal book, or you can create a collection with a separate volume for each decade)
