The Power of a Library Card . . . Part 1

This post was inspired by a visit to Culloden Academy Library. Thank you to Michelle Gowans, Network Librarian, who flagged up the following resource.


Did you know that you can use your High Life Highland Library card to access 2,200 newspapers across the world for free?

Whether it be a guided reading lesson extracting information or examining the writer’s techniques, a critical literacy lesson looking at persuasion and bias, or a research skills lesson where learners are sourcing information from texts – Press Display provides access to the lesson stimulus.

How to access Press Display

  1. Visit the Press Display Website
  2. Login using your barcode/library card number and click ‘Login’.
    (Please enter the 14-digit barcode number on the back of your library card. If you have a smart card starting 63360 or  6337, please enter the first 14-digits only, leaving off the last two digits.)
  3. You should now be logged into Press Display. (If you cannot log in using your borrower card please contact us.)
  4. Hover over ‘Select Title’ at the top of the page on the right hand side to select your newspaper by country, language or by title.
