From today, users of the National Library will be able to access the entire journal.lu website free of charge. This new resource is added to the digital offering available since October 2020, which provides free access to various Luxembourgish media.
However, for copyright reasons, this resource can only be viewed on library premises using the Wi-Fi network or the computers available.
At the same time, the National Library is working on a project to digitise and put online historical issues of the Lëtzebuerger Journal published between 1948 and 2020. Once the digitisation process and the addition of metadata have been completed, users will be able to view these issues free of charge on the eluxemburgensia.lu portal, which brings together 68 digitised periodicals including the daily Luxemburger Wort and the weekly d’Lëtzebuerger Land.
These two initiatives are the result of close collaboration with the Luxembourg media outlets Editpress, Lumedia, Mediahuis, Reporter Media, Éditions d’Lëtzebuerger Land and Editions Letzeburger Journal. The aim of this partnership is to guarantee democratic access to digital news such as Wort Plus, Tageblatt, Le Quotidien Premium, Reporter.lu and Journal.lu, as well as to its printed counterparts, which can be viewed in the Reading Room, or digitised issues, accessible via the eluxemburgensia.lu portal.
Other newspapers and news websites will be added in the future.
