While many issues are now out of stock in hard copy format, the Company Store has all editions through 2019 available for sale by download in format similar to CD/DVD. Currently there are 8 volumes, each comprising a 5-year collection. All issues are in PDF format, generally in high resolution.

The Sentinel and eSentinel Magazine Delivery Options
Alternatives for receiving the quarterly magazine, The Sentinel: Society members can choose to receive their quarterly magazine either as a hard copy through the USPS mail (the default method); as a digital download (the eSentinel) through our web site; or for an additional fee, receive both the hard copy and the digital download.
Members who wish to change the method of delivery but do not want BOTH hard copy and digital download: A member can change from hard copy to digital at any time. Just send an email to Membership and indicate your desire to change. When changing to digital be sure you give us a valid email address so you can be provided download instructions. You can revert back to receiving just the hard copy by again notifying Membership.
Changing to dual media delivery - hard copy by postal mail as well as digital download - at time of membership renewal: A member can choose to receive both the printed copy by mail as well as the digital copy by download for an additional fee of $10.00. This option is only available at time of membership renewal or within three months following renewal. This option will allow a member to digitally download four consecutive issues of The Sentinel as well as to receive the magazine in hard copy through the mail. You must be able to make these downloads within the term of two issues as only two issues will be available at any time. This option must be renewed annually at time of membership renewal. Once this option has been chosen, it will remain in effect until the next renewal period. You will receive the print version, and you may choose whether you download the digital version; but there will be no refund if you do not perform the downloads.
New members can select this option at time of membership application and add $10.00 to the application fee.
