Read All About It : Newspapers

For current events, I like to check a few international papers to see their take on the news. There are a number of aites that make short work of listing international papers and sometimes magazines in one place. Here are a few.


http://newslink.org/
NewsLink Associates is an academic and professional research and consulting firm studying electronic publishing and visual journalism.

http://www.onlinenewspapers.com/
“Thousands of world newspapers at your fingertips”
Simple drop menus arranged by region, the site does not list the total number of papers. Like many other sites, once you find the list of papers by region or city, unless you are familiar with the papers there is no way of knowing which are the major papers.

All You Can Read.com http://www.allyoucanread.com/
Described as “the largest database of magazines and newspapers on the Internet, with listings for about 22,800 magazines and newspapers from all over the world. AllYouCanRead.com is a complete guide to world media sources where readers find stories quickly -- whether it's news from Time Magazine or a small regional weekly newspaper in Asia.”

http://www.refdesk.com/paper.html
This is a favorite site of mine. Created by librarians, it is like having your bookmarks on one page. Their list of newspapers – USA and Worldwide US papers are arranged under their state flags and lower down the page are world regions.

The Internet Public Library
http://www.ipl.org/div/news/“The Internet Public Library is a public service organization and a learning/teaching environment at the University of Michigan School Of Information. Newspapers are arranged by region and then broken out by country.

The Paper Boy http://www.thepaperboy.com/countrysearch_new.cfm Another comparable site that also offers links to world papers. For members, there is a translation option beside each newspaper name.
