Historical research

I'm having a bit of a fun time doing historical research for this science fiction story, which starts out in 1899. I've found interviews with my protagonist in a couple of magazines from the era that, transcribed on random websites. I'd like to see if I can find copies of the actual magazine to photocopy for posterity and accuracy.

Where does one look to find a magazine published in 1899? The first one is Pearson's Magazine from May 1899 and the second is Collier's Weekly, dated February 19, 1901. I have vague memories of visiting the library as a teen and doing research via microfiche. I don't know if going to a library is my best option, or if it matters what library I go to.

Try the Newberry Library (http://i-share.carli.illinois.edu
) in Chicago for Pearson's. Looks like they have a partial collection. It was a UK peroidical :)

Also, try WorldCat (http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/) for help in searching libraries
