Press Display improves local access to global news sources

Starting this January, Albertans gained access to more than 1,200 newspapers from around the world through Press Display via their local public library.

The electronic resource provides same day news and information from 94 countries in 48 languages, including titles such as Wall Street Journal (USA/Canada) and Wall Street Journal’s Asian and European editions as well as almost 300 Canadian Newspapers.

That means library members can read their favorite international, national and provincial news publication from cover to cover, sometimes even before the publications hit the newsstands.

Financial news from all newspaper included in this resource are easy to read by using the front page menu. The business sections of all newspapers included are easily accessed and the publications are full-colour, full-format, and run on a range of platforms, including PC, Mac, iPhone and Blackberry.

Press Display provides newcomers to Alberta with access to news in their native language, helping preserve cultural ties. Newcomers in particular also have an opportunity to develop language skills by reading English-language newspapers.
