Newspapers from Around the World Available Online

The Bowdoin community now has access to a database of current newspapers Library Press Displayworldwide. Library PressDisplay provides “instant online access to today’s newspapers from around the world in full-color, full-page format. The ever-expanding collection currently includes more than 1,200 U.S. and international titles—from 94 countries in 48 languages. Just like reading the familiar print edition, viewers can browse articles and other key content, such as pictures, advertisements, classifieds, and notices. The service also provides up to a 60-day backfile and the ability to perform keyword searches across all titles and the entire backfile.” (from the database description)

Note that 3 users may access the database at one time (additional users are fairly pricey), so if you can’t get in, just try again. And if access is a consistent problem, let us know!
