CQL Site Links to AltPress Resources

The Copper Queen Library enhanced its own online resources today and
expanded its electronic offerings to Bisbee residents by adding a link to
the Alternative Press Center’s Alternative Viewpoints on the Internet site.

APC’s “Viewpoints” site provides an alphabetical listing of links to 425+
alternative online resources, ranging from “Abya Yala Net,” a project of
the South and Meso American Indian Rights Center and NativeWeb, to the
University of Texas’ “Zapatista Net,” a multimedia experiment inspired by
the Zapatistas that pushes the envelope with sound samples, movie clips
and cutting-edge plug-ins.

The Alternative Press Center is a non-profit collective dedicated to providing
access to and increasing public awareness of the alternative press. Founded in
1969, it remains one of the oldest self-sustaining alternative media institutions
in the United States. For more than a quarter of a century, APC has been
recognized as a leader in providing access to the alternative press in the United
States and around the world.

Look for a link to the Library’s website on the home page of the City of Bisbee’s
official website (http://cityofbisbee.com) or connect here.
