El Palacio Digitized

First 10 Years of El Palacio Digitized and Placed Online

El Palacio Magazine, published by the Museum of New Mexico for nearly 100 years, celebrates the digital age just as the state celebrates its centennial, by putting the first ten years of the magazine online, free to all at http://archives.elpalacio.org. With the changing times, the vision of many magazine publishers—including El Palacio‘s—has had to broaden in order to continue a print product while also developing an online version and full archive for a Web-savvy audience. The New Mexico State Library’s State Document Program, which has long collected and cataloged printed copies of El Palacio, shared the magazine’s online, digital goals because of the publication’s historical content, its focus on New Mexico, and its perfect fit with the library’s mission to increase access to state publications.
