You may or may not know that I have been collecting Oracle Magazines. It all began back when I had my very first job as a graduate consultant with Oracle in Ireland. A few days ago I received a package that contained the following Oracle Magazines. You will see that the list contains the very first edition and the second edition. Up to now I’ve just had an electronic copy of the first edition.
Here is the full list of the Oracle Magazines that were in the package.

My Oracle Magazine Collection can be found here. You will find links to my blog posts that summarize the contents of some of the previous editions. This is a work in progress project and at some point I will have summarized them all. On my Oracle Magazine Collection page I have a PDF for the very first Oracle Magazine from June 1987.
I’m now very close to having the full collection. If you have any of the magazines that I’m missing and you are willing to donate them, let me know
