      In 2003, we introduced an archive of all MOTHER EARTH NEWS' issues from the 1970s on CD-ROM, presenting a new way of accessing past issues of the magazine in a digital environment. Thousands of readers responded to the notion of being able to sift through our first decade at the click of a mouse, and to the ability to search for what specifically interested them.

      Following that success, we continued to expand the archive to cover more of the magazine's past issues on disc. Most recently, we introduced the Multiplatform Edition, which makes the magazine content available not just on desktop and laptop computers, but also via smartphones and the multitude of portable reading devices that have become so ubiquitous. Now, we are pleased to reintroduce the classic version of the archive, for the first time with enhanced search functionality across MOTHER's entire 44-year history. With this version of the archive, you can search for articles about earth-sheltered homes, cheap solar power, organic gardening techniques, raising chickens, beekeeping, do-it-yourself projects and much more.

      Confused about the difference between our two archive products? - These are the key distinctions:

      • The Multiplatform Edition contains files for each year of the magazine in a format that can be transferred for viewing and searching on multiple devices. The content can only be viewed and searched year by year.
      • The Classic Edition provides a browser-based interface for accessing the archive on your desktop computer or laptop. You can do advanced searches and view content from the entire 44-year archive, all at once!
      Please Note: This DVD is a DVD-ROM for use in a PC or Macintosh computer. It is not a video and will not work in DVD video players. We recommend using the Firefox Web browser to view this DVD. You can download Firefox here.
