Much like the ZINIO E-magazine the Library PressDisplay is another area to go, to find more E-magazines. Below is a link to the Library PressDisplay link:

The Library PressDisplay is a new service that has became available during August 2015. Hopefully you will find it helpful across all your subjects. At the bottom of the page you can find different areas on the website that could help you with some subjects in the curriculum.

Logging In

When you click on the link you will be taken to a page that is similar to the one below.


On the right there is a box asking for an email and password, below it is a box asking for a Borrower/ Library card no. this is the box that you go for. All you do is enter all the digits on your Young Scot Card. 

Now when you enter you card number you will get a massive page like this, that is filled with tons of things not to worry.

At the top in the Red box is the search box where you can search for a magazine that you are looking for.
Just below that in the Green box the revolving news bar. This is where different popular news stories from different magazines are displayed.
In the Yellow box is where you can look at different news stories from the past week. Just pick a day and see what the latest news is.
In the Light Blue box is all of that days main news stories from different news papers.
In the Dark Blue box is the websites main navigation area. Where you can look at more specific sections such as Sports, Business. If you are looking for something more specific like a magazine on computer games or on music then look further down at the A Countries Publicationssection.
In the Purple box is where you can select a country to look further in to what magazines/newspapers that country has available (however they will be in that countries language not necessarily English). eg UK - The Independent, Top Gear Magazine, The Guardian. France - Le Monde, La Tribune.
In the Orange box is where you can find popular publications and some of the top reporters in the world. 

Reading a Magazine

To read a magazine all you have to do is click on the magazine and it will open it up for you to read. When it is open there is a magnifying glass in the bottom footer that can help you zoom in or out to make reading the magazine easier. There will also be a contents page that you can use to navigate to the different sections of the magazine. 

A Countries Publications

On the main page you are able to look up different publications from different countries (Purple box). When you select a country you will get all the magazines and news papers that are accessible on the screen for you to choose from. On the left of this will be a list of links to all the magazines and newspapers available sorted in alphabetical order. If you know what sort of magazine you are looking for then it would be worth looking through this list to see if it matches what you are looking for.
