Back Issues

Berman-era (1984-June 1999) issues available online

Back issues of Orienteering North America (ONA) from 1984 - 1999 are now available online. The collection consists of all 140 issues published by, and made available courtesy of, Larry and Sara Mae Berman. We hope to add additional ONA issues in the future. 

There are several ways to access the collection. A "bookcase" view is available at URL:

Take a look at the "Start Here" issue (the first one shown in the upper left of the bookcase) for details about the collection and tips on using it.


To share individual issues:  While viewing an issue, click the "Share" icon (image examples) to share an issue (and then either copy the URL or choose one of the social media icons).

To link to a specific page in an issue: Copy the URL and add     /#p=X     to the issue URL, where X is the page number. The best place to see the correct page number for the URL is at the bottom of the screen, since that's the page number as scanned and as being veiwed; it is not the page number as printed in the magazine.

Enjoy browsing a bit of our history!

Back Issues of Orienteering North America available in print

We have quite a few back issues left over and are offering them to Orienteering USA members, ONA direct subscribers and friends of OUSA for the cost of postage. Rather than collecting dust in the ONA office, we feel they should be out there being read. So for a limited time only, you can get any issue(s) we have of the magazine (back to 2000). You can pay by check ($2.75 per copy — Donna Fluegel, 5 Kingswood Dr., Bethel, CT 06801; be sure to include your mailing address) or via PayPal ($3 — see request line and button below). Donna will mail them to you when she receives your payment.

If you'd like a large number of back issues, please contact Donna Fluegel (fluegeldonna AT sbcglobal DOT net) for pricing.
