The Sydney Morning Herald Digital Edition is a digital copy of the printed newspaper. It includes all issues of the SMH from 2006 up to and including today's. A subscription to this service normally costs around $139 a year.
The Sydney Morning Herald Archives is a digital copy of editions of the Sydney Morning Herald from 1955 to February 1995. An annual subscription for this service normally costs $395 a year.
For existing library card holders, the login system is very simple. All you need is your library card number. There are no passwords.
And a tip for those who wish to browse the SMH Archives for free and are not eligible for the SLNSW membership, or would rather not wait for the card to arrive, try examining the URL for the SMH Archives on the SLNSW EResources page which carries certain sensitive information in plain text. Then take a close look at the login box on this page. EDIT: The State Library has now changed the login method.
