Whether in print or digital format, did you know that the MI Library subscribes to almost 400 titles of magazines, newspapers, and newsletters? On your next visit to the Library, make sure to stop by the 3rd Floor periodicals section to peruse some of these new and notable titles:
Based in Barcelona, Apartamento : an everyday life interiors magazine, is far from the carefully curated, pretentiously white-walled interior design magazine. The English language bi-annual features the well lived in spaces of emerging and established creative types-- including artists, photographers, and musicians-- and their relationship to the places that they inhabit. This magazine is beyond the status of having a cult-readership, the most recent issues include interviews with Martha Stewart, Jason Schwartzman, Todd Oldham, and Donald Judd.
With the generosity of San Francisco Heritage, the Library now carries, Heritage News, a quarterly newsletter that focuses on current preservation issues in San Francisco and includes articles on the history and development of the city’s architecture and neighborhoods. This full colored, illustrated print newsletter celebrates the legacy of our city buildings, historic homes, and iconic store-fronts. Also, make sure to check it out for upcoming lectures and events.
For web designers, freelancers, and UX enthusiasts, Net : the Internet magazine is a monthly with the latest resources, tips, and bits of inspiration in tech. Articles include, “How we built The Met”, which reveals how firms ‘tackled vast amounts of content and an immovable deadline' to refresh The Metropolitan museum website, “Building interactive emails with CSS”, as well as “Getting started with web performance testing” which outlines why testing matters and what tools are needed to get started.
The portable Desert Oracle is a quarterly, literary-history magazine founded by Ken Layne, former founder/political editor of the L.A. Examiner, The Awl, and Gawker media. Based in Joshua Tree, California, this “mini-mag” is rich in local folklore, California history, and desert reminisces.
Even if tending a farm isn’t in your repertoire, Modern Farmer, is a quarterly publication that reports not only on cultivating better soil, bees, or a winter garden, but addresses issues with our food and what we’re eating. They also aim to inform consumers on what “organic” really means or if GMOs are really that bad?, as well as feature farm-friendly chefs and restaurants.
