Paperless Research

Now Screening: Around the World in 22 Periodicals

Now Screening highlights NYPL's recent electronic resource acquisitions. This month: the digital runs of several national and international newspapers and magazines. Publishers Weekly Digital Archive is available at any NYPL location. All other titles are available at any NYPL location, or remotely using your library card.

This summer, the New York Public Library added a bevy of new magazine and newspaper titles to its collection of online resources. These new acquisitions are international in scope, covering nine cities, six countries, and three continents. Whether you're interested in WWII-era Russia or last year's Chanel couture runway, the only passport you'll need is your library card.
