Newspaper Map

mapThere’s a new way to read electronic facsimiles of current newspapers from around the world other than through Library PressDisplay (NewspaperDirect), a Penn Libraries e-resource.  If the paper you are looking for is not in the PressDisplay, try Newspaper Map which purportedly displays over 10,000 newspapers on one Google Map.  Navigating the map, it may be tricky locating the paper you want from areas of dense marker population. Luckily you can use the search boxes to locate titles by place and name; that’s usually the easier path. What makes this resource really useful is each title is linked with translation options (though it doesn’t always deliver I discovered). Give it a try.  It’s fun reading even (or especially) without a research agenda.
