CPUT staff and students now have online access to 5 500 local and international newspapers and magazines.

Earlier this month, the CPUT libraries added PressReader to their online database of service providers.

PressReader is the world’s largest database of online newspapers and magazines and currently there are over 8 400 PressReader hotspots where access is sponsored by businesses, libraries, airlines, cruise liners and hotels.

Marketing Librarian Hillary Hartle says PressReader is a popular digital database that is currently being used by a number of higher education institutions.

Currently PressReader provides access to 157 of South Africa’s most popular newspapers and magazines.

Hartle says the website is easy to navigate and can be customized by users choosing sections of their favourite publications or following others.

The app can be downloaded from Google Play Store or the PressReader website. CPUT staff and students can access PressReader via the CPUT website using their CPUT log on details. Once logged in, users have various options, from accessing their favourite local newspapers to international magazines.
