Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card. That’s even more true if your version of fun includes accessing over 7000 of Australian and international newspapers and magazines. Even if you don’t count it as fun, it’s still a good idea.
Library PressDisplay is an archival resource that hosts thousands upon thousands of newspapers and magazines from around the world. Magazines like PC Powerplay, Edge, Australian Geographic, Top Gear, Lonely Planet and Popular Science. There are local and national newspapers too, so you can check in on the day to day life of your hometown if you’ve moved away.
It’s an impressive catalog and includes not just the most recent editions but years of old editions.
You can access Library PressDisplay by logging in with the eight-digit barcode from your library card. Don’t have a library card? They’re free, go to your local library when you have a chance and sign up. Or you can be a bit cheeky – like the people over at OzBargain – and punch in random eight-digit codes until it lets you in.
