Newspaper Direct

Wow! Although I’m not sure how all the details work right now, I’m impressed with the fact that this Newspaper Direct service can deliver over 250 full format newspapers from around the world electronically the same-day. Windsor PL is the first public library IN Canada to try out this new service (info)

There’s a slew of newspaper’s already participating. I wonder if this might be of interest to look into? The company premiered the service for libraries at ALA last year and recently just launched a new print on demand service to accompany it.

BTW: Check out the Press Display site (the tool that displays the actual newspapers online). How cool is it to be able to view the the front pages from major newspapers across the world in any language? What a powerful tool for our foreign speaking population!
