The Economist have changed their digital lending model and this restricts access to previous issues.
OverDrive has decided not to support this change in access. As a result, all editions of The Economist will be removed from OverDrive and Libby magazine collections effective Wednesday 1 February 2023. The last issue available for readers to borrow will be Saturday 28 January 2023. All back issues will also be removed from collections on Wednesday 1 February.
The latest issues of The Economist are available for Christchurch City Library members via PressReader, and back issues from 1843 to 2020 are available through The Economist Historical Archive.
