PressReader is a digital platform that provides unlimited access to over 7,000 newspaper and magazine publications from around the world, as soon as they are available on shelves. It includes access to local papers like the Chronicle Herald and other Saltwire weeklies, as well as The Globe and Mail, The Guardian, Newsweek, Forbes, Vogue, and more!
