이곳은 아직 겨울입니다

겨을의 정상, 그래도 살만 합니다. 이쯤되면 세상이 온통 겨울일거라는 착각으로 살아 갈 수 있으니까요. 뿐만아니라 한국의 더위 소식은 오히려 이 겨울을 감사하게 만듭니다.

PressDisplay – unlimited access and joy

showimage.aspxOne of our most popular electronic resources PressDisplay has been a victim of its own success for some time now. In the morning between 7am and 9am people were getting turned away from the site as it was simply too busy. Apparently lots of you like to read the Press over your Weetbix in the morning and it was overloading the system!

Luckily we have been granted a wonderful New Year’s gift with unlimited access now available to PressDisplay. No more turnaways, no more disappointments – just online newsy happiness to be had by all! Well, as much happiness that the news can ever bring …

All you need is to be in a library or access it from home with your library card number and password/PIN

Keep informed and keep reading!

PS: In case you haven’t noticed PressDisplay has added over 800 online magazines to its title collection including NZ Fishing World, Top Gear (UK), Healthy Food Guide (NZ), Cross Stitch … Joy!

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.
