The publications were originally digitized by Google at the University of Michigan, Indiana University, the University of California system, and the University of Wisconsin. SAA has made them available under a Creative Commons license. (A number of other SAA publications are also in the HathiTrust repository, but are not fully viewable due to copyright restrictions.)
The collection of fully viewable publications primarily dates from the 1970s to the 1990s, and includes many issues of the SAA Newsletter and the American Archivist journal. SAA plans to post a full list of available publications on its website, with links, in May.
