NEW Notice of Change to Stuff Ltd. Titles on PressReader (8/11/2019)

Stuff Ltd are now limiting all "offsite" access to their Press Reader offerings. This means that you will no longer be able to access Stuff titles using the library website remotely or logging into PressReader using your library card credentials outside of the library.

Stuff Ltd titles will still, however, be available for access at the following Waitaki District Libraries HotSpots via the public WiFi: Oamaru Public Library, Palmerston Public Library and Kurow Community Library.

Publishers put a lot of work into their content, and this change reflects the publisher’s wish to maintain ownership of their titles while keeping them freely available to library patrons. Below is a list of the Stuff titles that are affected:

  • Sunday Star Times
  • Sunday News
  • Southland Times (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Waikato Times (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Dominion Post (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • The Press (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Nelson Mail (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Timaru Herald (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Manawatu Standard (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Taranaki Daily News (Weekday & Weekend Editions
  • Marlborough Express
  • TV Guide
  • NZ House and Garden
  • NZ Gardener
  • We apologise for any inconvenience. The PressReader team is always working hard to bring libraries and their patron’s access to the world’s most premium, trusted titles – and expect to launch many more in the coming months.
