The first issue of the Goddard News was published on October 17, 1960. As an official publication of the Office of Public Affairs of the Goddard Space Flight Center it is the oldest, contemporary, first-hand account of events surrounding the people and projects at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Originally published monthly, it's publication frequency varied and during its final years it was published weekly.
The Goddard Library has a nearly 40-year full print run of issues from October 1960 - December 1998. This collection was scanned by the Library from their print copies. Not every issue published during this time was available for scanning so some years are incomplete. Issues of its successor, Goddard View, are available at http://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/news/goddard-view.html
This collection is still under development and is not fully integrated into the repository. It is not included in the "Search All Collections" option, nor is there a function to allow searching across all the issues in the collection. However, each individual PDF is full-text searchable.
