Access Changes to the Oregonian
For the last few years, PCC Library has provided online access to The Oregonian newspaper. The Oregonian has switched vendors for providing online access, which substantially increased the cost and complexity of this service. As a result, PCC Library cannot provide direct online full-text access to the Oregonian after July 1, 2011.
What Access is Still Available?
PCC library still subscribes to the Oregonian in print, making recent copies available, and has strong online newspaper holdings, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and hundreds of others from around the world. Please ask a PCC librarian for details.
Additionally, faculty can get free online access to all content of the Oregonian from the last calendar year by signing up for the Oregonian in Education program. This program allows instructors to get copies of specific articles for themselves and their classes, either as a scan of the original or as html. This version includes syndicated columnists such as Leonard Pitts Jr., comics, and wire service stories. It also allows access via mobile devices, Kindles, Nooks, etc. The Newspapers in Education version has a rolling one-year backfile.
Finally, many local public libraries are maintaining both print and database subscriptions to the Oregonian, and if you are a cardholder at one of those libraries, you can get individual access. Check with the librarians at your public library if you have any questions about that access.
