The MeL Newsstand

Picture1Remember the corner newspaper stand …? A place where you could find daily newspapers from around the region as well as national and even international publications?  Back then, you could get a different perspective on important news, events and people from all over scanning these stacks ….

You can still find a similar experience in this digital age of ours -with the MeL Database InfoTrac Newsstand.

Over 1,100 publications in various formats and languages are included with coverage variously ranging from 1980 to the present.

Search results can be narrowed by publication title, date, section, (Business, Opinion and Editorial, Lifestyle, etc.), even Lexile Score, and more. Investor’s Business Daily, The Guardian, Christian Science Monitor, Toronto Star, and El Norte are some of the titles included.

Keep InfoTrac Newsstand in mind the next time you and your patrons are looking for the world view as covered in the press.  Michigan residents or Michigan library access only.
