The Online Newsstand~here at a library near you!

Ever been up late and wondered if you could locate and read the latest issue of Real Simple or Consumer Reports magazines online?  Well doing so just got a lot easier for Manchester residents.  The Manchester City Library is pleased to announce that we are participating in a state-wide project that is directed at making the access of journals and magazines a lot easier for library patrons.

As noted by the projects creator, librarian Steve Butzel, “The Online Newsstand accomplishes its goal of providing easy, enjoyable access to popular and scholarly magazine articles by providing dynamically generated persistent links to feature length articles in each of the magazines included in the Newsstand. To read an article, all a patron has to do is click on the article they want, login at the next screen with their library barcode or student ID, and Bam!, they are connected directly to the article. Patrons don’t have to know what a database is or how to search one. They just get direct access to the articles they want to read. Simple!”

So look for the Online Newsstand on our library website. The Online Newsstand: at a library website near you!
