NewspaperDirect Adds Magazines

Posted & filed under Library blog, Technology.

Q: What do “Martha Stewart Living,” “Old House Journal,” “Vegetarian Times,” “Digital Camera World,” and “MacLife” have in common?

A: They are among the magazines that Lincolnwood residents can now access online using their library cards!

The Lincolnwood Public Library offers online access to thousands of newspapers from around the world, in about sixty different languages, through the NewspaperDirect service.

There were already several magazines among NewspaperDirect’s many publications, but the company recently announced that it would offer many more. Beyond the titles listed above, new additions include “Yoga Journal,” “Creative Knitting,” “Maximum PC,” “Highlights for Children,” “Backpacker,” and “Total Film”—truly a magazine for every interest.

To find this treasure trove of periodicals, look for Research in our website’s main navigation and select NewspaperDirect from the drop-down menu. Enter your library card number, then search by title using the search bar at the top of the page, or select USA in the Titles by Country menu on the left to browse all U.S. publications.

Magazines display in full color, with every article, photograph, and advertisement you’d find in the print edition—but without those pesky subscription cards. If you find you need the hard copy of an article, you can choose whether to print an entire page or just a section that you select. Some titles even offer RSS feeds, so you can get new content delivered to your favorite feed reader.

Most publications include only the three most current issues in NewspaperDirect. For older magazine articles (and for fully indexed, searchable content), try MasterFile Premier.
