To the news of the day…

Do you want access to job vacancies, births and deaths notices and stories of importance from all around the world before that information has even gone to print? Does the thought of chewing on your vegemite toast while reading news about Obama before Washington politicians have been able to get their grubby hands on it appeal to you? Or on a lighter note do you relish the thought of nabbing the crossword in the paper before your workmates have managed to see it so you can come across as the office genius? The library has the solution in the form of Press Display!

Press DisplayThis easy to use electronic resource gives you full page replicas of over 900 newspapers from 91 countries in 41 languages with their normal layout and complete editorial content including advertising.  There is plenty of local content as you can see major New Zealand newspapers such as  The Press or the Dominion Post. New Zealand local and provincial news is also covered with publications from the Northern News to the Southland Times. Read these publications online as if they were sitting in your hand!

For those familiar with life further afield, why not catch up on news as it happens in your native language such as Chinese, Afrikaans, Arabic or Russian! We have everything from Albania’s “Shekulli” to Zimbabwe’s “Business Weekly”. Today’s edition and up to 60 days of back issues are available for you to enjoy – simply search the library catalogue for “Press Display” or individual newspaper titles.  Alternatively, you can find Press Display along with other useful electronic resources in our Premium sites.

    I’m a big fan of Press Display – and everyone I’ve showed it to likes it too. It’s great for family visitors over Christmas or international guests. One of the best things is that as well as the news you can get the crosswords, comics and family notices!
