Did you know you can go online and read the latest national and international newspapers and magazines for free?

By simply using your Wellington City Libraries' card number you can access easy-to-use databases where you can search across thousands of articles on a range of topics, browse online magazines and newspapers, or link to a site that has the answers you need.

PressDisplay covers hundreds of newspapers from 80 countries in 40 languages. It shows current world papers, including The Dominion Post, New Zealand Herald, Washington Post, and UK Guardian, all complete with photographs, graphics and even advertisements.

Another resource, EBSCO, offers a one-stop source for news and magazine articles on a wide range of topics, including business, current events, economics, education and environmental issues. Titles include Harvard Business Review, Time, New Yorker and New Scientist.

This is a great way to get up-to-date national and international news from the library at any time. To view these databases, go to: - Wellington City Libraries website
