ProQuest Information and Learning has announced the introduction of ND Press, a new service enabling librarians to print reference copies of today's newspapers from around the world directly in the library. ProQuest will distribute ND Press to public, academic, government, and corporate libraries worldwide.

ND Press, a service by NewspaperDirect, prints exact newspaper replicas of more than 330 titles from 60 countries in 36 languages. ND Press supports academic research particularly in the fields of international studies, political science, and business. In addition, ND Press serves a public library's population by providing access to newspapers from around the world the same day the paper is released. ND Press titles include: Le Monde, Frankfurter Allegemaine Zeitung, El Pais, and Mainichi Shimbun, as well as titles from the United States, including the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, and The Washington Post.

ND Press allows newspapers to be printed from multiple workstations to any networked printers. Libraries can customize their service to have titles printed automatically or as needed. The new service includes a 60-day archive of past issues. Users have the option of printing the entire newspaper or individual page prints, including article text, advertisements, classifieds, and notices (varies by publication). Free trials of ND Press are available.
