Christchurch libraries source leading worldwide newspapers

The organisation’s subscription to PressDisplay means members can receive a full newspaper reading experience, explained Christchurch City Libraries content manager, Ann Ready.

“The service offers a ‘you flip the pages over, as you do with a newspaper’ system, and you can browse newspapers page by page, or go directly to an article on the page you’re interested in,” said Ms Ready. “You can then zoom in or out to make reading really easy.”

Newspapers are available in 36 languages and can be translated into 12. The papers can be read in their full graphic versions as printed or as text-only versions, and users can also hear the news read by switching on the integrated radio.

Included in the 650 newspapers are 73 New Zealand publications such as The Press, The Dominion Post and The New Zealand Herald. Among the extensive international coverage is over 70 newspapers from Australia such as The Sydney Morning Herald, and over 100 each from both the United Kingdom and the United States.
