The PressReader platform provides access to over 7,500 newspapers and magazines.

To access the Library's subscription via the PressReader app for iOS or Android, simply access the app on campus while your device is connected to the University WiFi network.

You can continue to enjoy access to PressReader even while off-campus by creating a PressReader account while you are on campus. Access will last for 7 days, and this period will be reset every time you access PressReader via the University WiFi network.

If you are off-campus, you can still get unlimited access to PressReader by following these steps:

  1. Use the Library's PressReader referral link to get access to PressReader. If you are off-campus, you will need to login with your HKBU SSOid.
  2. On the PressReader homepage, click on the Sign In link in the top-right corner:

  3. Create a new PressReader account by following the link highlighted below:

  4. Download the app for iOS or Android
  5. Open the app and sign in using the account that you have just created

You will then have unlimited access to PressReader for 7 days, even when off-campus. To renew your access, simply login to your PressReader account while connected to a campus network, or after accessing PressReader through the Library's referral link and authenticating with your HKBU SSOid.
