What a terrific idea this is. Â The Online Newsstand Project brings libraries together to make magazine articles simpler to access. Â Magazine covers are displayed on your library’s website and your customers simply click through to see a list of articles. I was very excited to see that one of my local libraries, theÂ Bethlehem Public Library, is participating.
This project was developed by Steve Butzel at the Portsmouth (NH) Public Library. Â Â AÂ post on the Swiss Army LibrarianÂ blog explains how it works and how simple it is for libraries to get involved and expand the project.
Check out theÂ Online Newsstand ProjectÂ website to find out which libraries are already participating and how to get involved.Â
