Library PressDisplay now available in over 600 libraries
…and the number keeps growing…
A few weeks ago, I started to write a press release about the fact that over 500 libraries are now offering PressDisplay.com to their patrons. But by the time I went to post it on the wire, the number had jumped to 600. It’s hard to keep up!
In just over three years, PressDisplay.com has become the standard for online newspapers in libraries around the world. It is much more affordable for libraries than receiving printed editions of international newspapers, and it offers an environmentally-friendly and more convenient alternative for patrons who enjoy instant access to hundreds of papers on the day they are published.
“In our public library, PressDisplay fills many needs,” said Chuck Sherrill, director, The Brentwood Library, Brentwood, Tennessee. “We could not possibly afford this many subscriptions to print copies of the variety of newspapers our patrons enjoy. PressDisplay gives us the opportunity to serve our multicultural and well-travelled community with up-to-date news from the cities and countries that are important to them.”
Library PressDisplay is particularly popular with teachers, students, expatriates and local residents who enjoy the breadth and variety of hundreds of world publications — available on the day they are published.
“I use Library PressDisplay at my local library,” said Ray West of Hamilton, Ontario. “It has an excellent software interface. I have found that the navigation options are logical, predictable, and clever — and they always work as I expect them to. I particularly like the capsule comment on the mouse-over and the way I am always returned back to my jump-off point if I go off to read a particular story. I don’t think I have ever read so many different newspapers, so quickly.”
Why not check to see if your library offers PressDisplay.com to its patrons. And if it doesn’t, then tell them that they’re behind the times, and point them here!
