Sky & Telescope featured the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse on the cover of their January 2016 issue.  Inside the magazine were two articles. 

The first article was entitled "Why You Need to Plan Now for 2017" discussed the basics for assessing where you might want to go to witness the eclipse including an analysis of past weather patterns for the day. 

The second article entitled "Wanted:  90 minutes of Totality" discussed the Citizen Cate Experiment. In the Citizen Cate experiment intends to open a new window through which to study the dynamics of the inner solar corona.  The project will cover 2,500 miles using 60 telescopes manned by volunteers.

Many libraries carry Sky & Telescope in their magazine collection.  Both articles are worth reading.
