There are a few options if you need a cover image from either Nature, Science or Scientific American.

The Library maintains a print archive of these titles in the Sherman Fairchild basement (Scientific American) and the Geology Library (Nature and Science). 

Science - Currently Science Classic does not include cover images for volumes published prior to 1995. The Library does have access to Science issues from JSTOR and this platform *does* include cover images. Click on "front matter" after you get to the issue you need. 

Nature - Nature's website only has more recent cover images. If you need an earlier cover please visit the print collection in Geology or request one via Docuserve. 

Scientific American - There are cover images for Scientific American when you use JSTOR. Click on "front matter" for the issue you need. There are jpeg images of each cover through 2016.
