An extensive, searchable digital archive of the design magazine Architectural Digest is now available from EBSCO Information Services. This interesting news came to us from Market Wired in their article, “EBSCO Information Services Introduces the Architectural Digest Magazine Archive.”

The Architectural Digest Magazine Archive includes cover-to-cover access to issues of the design magazine from the 1920s to 2011. All articles and advertisements have been indexed with subject terms to allow users to find relevant results quickly. Architectural Digest is another in in the many EBSCO’s magazine archives.

With any database project, it is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate machine-assisted indexing. Access Innovations can provide solutions that are ANSI compliant.
