Library PressDisplay Now Available in 1,000+ Libraries Worldwide
At the Frankfurt Book Fair today, NewspaperDirect announced that Library PressDisplay.com is now available in more than 1,000 libraries worldwide. As libraries flock to the Web-based newsstand, millions of library patrons are enjoying instant access to more than 800 full-content newspapers and magazines — from 81 countries and in 38 languages.
Congratulations to the Library of the University Carlos III in Madrid, Spain! It became the 1,000th library to adopt Library PressDisplay as its international news source.
“After evaluating alternatives for accessing international press, our Journalism and Library Science departments recommended Library PressDisplay to us,” said Aurora de Mesa, librarian for the Library of the University of Carlos III. “And we’ve discovered that it is not only a great resource for research and teaching, it is the best source for international press for the whole University.”
Library PressDisplay is distributed by NewspaperDirect in co-operation with its global partners (EBSCO, ProQuest and Swets to name a few). In fact, it was Swets that closed the 1,000 library deal for us.
“Swets is committed to providing its customers with class-leading services that make the most relevant information available in the most efficient and convenient manner,” said Thomas Snyder, chief commercial officer for Swets. “Press Display ensures that same-day information is readily available for researchers around the world in a highly innovative and sophisticated manner. The response from our customer base has been highly enthusiastic and we look forward to continuing our fruitful and rewarding partnership with NewspaperDirect.”
It was only 7 months ago we announced 600 libraries adopting Library PressDisplay. The growth we’re seeing is phenomenal – we’ll be at 2,000 before you know it!
