News Around the World

Curious about headlines around the world today? Eager to practice your Spanish, Croatian, or Mandarin? Library Press Display (UW restricted) gives page images of world papers:
Library PressDisplay provides online access to over 700 newspapers from more than 55 countries, displayed in their original format and accessible by country, language, or title.
Since this service displays images, you get ads, cartoon, and photos, not just text. It's just one of the many rich databases we have access to through the University Libraries.

Today's Front Pages is a free site (from the Newseum). Each day it presents 866 front pages from 86 countries.

So grab a cup of coffee and scan a newspaper—from nearly anywhere!
