The Economist now available in print only

OverDrive’s e-Magazine collection is no longer carrying The Economist

Collection Notice

As of February 1, 2023, all editions and back issues of "The Economist" have been removed from OverDrive’s e-Magazine collection. Print versions will be available at select Library locations.

Why has OverDrive made this decision?

In response to a change in digital-lending policies for The Economist, which OverDrive could not support, OverDrive decided to remove this magazine title from its collection.

Are there any alternatives?

OverDrive is adding new magazines to its collection regularly. Coming soon is another popular financial magazine, "Fortune." 

Still, wishing to read The Economist?

Although "The Economist" has been removed from OverDrive’s collection, you find the print version at select branches.

Print versions are currently available at the following locations: Alderney Gate, Captain William Spry, Halifax Central, Halifax North Memorial, Keshen Goodman, and Woodlawn.
