This resource includes the complete archive of National Geographic magazine — every page of every issue from 1888 to the present. It also includes National Geographic Traveler.

A search for national parks will bring up a variety of topics from articles and e-books, and beautiful images.

There are 100 books in NGVL on national parks, including Drives of a Lifetime: 500 of the World’s Greatest Roadtrips and Secrets of the National Parks.

Other titles include Pocket Guide to Trees and Shrubs of North America, Birding Essentials: All the Tools, Techniques, and Tips you Need to be a Better Birder and Novel Destinations: A Travel Guide to Literary Landmarks from Jane Austen’s Bath to Ernest Hemingway’s Key West.
