More information about this conference session

Walter Parker's picture

Hello; I'd like to introduce myself and invite group members to connect during ALA.

NewspaperDirect supplies digital editions of 2,000+ major world newspapers, on Library PressDisplay (*the full newspaper or magazine content, very early each day, with features like text view, zoom, audio, advanced Boolean search, translation, an intuitive multilingual interface, built in help, and much more). Downloading and mobile access are available, via a free app, PressReader.

I'd love to meet briefly to demonstrate Library PressDisplay or PressReader, learn how libraries and library patrons are using newspaper content, and (possibly) arrange a trial for you :)

Please contact me directly to schedule a time.

Kind regards,
(Walter) Neil Parker
