I’ve given countless tours to library customers and by now, I must have mentioned Newspaper Direct Press Display hundreds of times. But, I never tire of mentioning it because customers' reactions are so great – usually something like: “Oh, wow! I didn’t know this even existed!”
If you have a library card, you have access to the Calgary Herald and the Calgary Sun every day, along with hundreds of other papers from around the world.
I’ve mentioned it in tours, blogged about it, and shown it to customers who approach the information desk. Check it out at your local library, from a smart phone, or at home.
Start at our homepage, and click on the E-library link. Select Newspapers & Magazines, then Newspaper Direct Press Display. Have your library card handy, because you’ll need it to log in.
At the top right corner of the page, there’ll be a link to “select title”. Use this link to find the paper of your choice. Articles can be e-mailed, translated, posted to facebook, “tweeted” and so on. There are even citation tools, in case you’re going to mention the article in an essay or report.
If you need assistance you can call us at (403) 260-2782, or start a chat with us, from our homepage.
Enjoy, news junkies!
