The “International Press Library” is Up and Running! (Useful Links to the Foreign Media)

July 22, 2008

This library of links to foreign news sites is a result of years of putting together the World Media Watch for another site.  It certainly does not list every available foreign news site, but, instead, reflects the sites that I found most useful. Included are a list of sites which provide extensive links to many more foreign sites.

It is permanently available by clicking the “Intl’l. Press Library” tab at the top of the page.

In the future, as I begin to do the World Media Watch again, hopefully on a more regular basis, I’ll be adding more sites as I come across them and will update these lists accordingly.

I also plan to add a page devoted to energy-related sites which I developed when I did the World Energy Watch, another project that I hope to return to in the future.

I hope visitors to this site find this “library” useful.
