Please see above a scanned image of the double page spread on Libraries at risk from the Courier Mail. Unfortunately, you will not be able to read it- this would possibly breach copyright.Congratulations to all involved in arranging for the publication of this article.
If you would like to read the article, and do not have Tuesday’s Courier Mail, then you can do so via the Library Press Display database. This can be accessed for free in QLD by logging on to the State Library offsite databases with your Council Library card or a State Library e-card.
In QLD, to order a free e-card online click the following link (the e-card will arrive in the mail in about 5 working days- use a private address) http://srlopac.slq.qld.gov.au/webvoyage/servlet/PatronRegistrationForm/. More information about e-services membership can be found here http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/services/ecard. Online tutorials and other assistance provided by the State Library can be found here http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/services/training
. The e-card provides free online access to a large number of excellent databases. Library Press Display is one of these, and provides fully digitised copies of hundreds of newspapers from around the world.
Other states may have similar arrangements via their council or state libraries.
