How do I read a copy of the paper online?

Our digital copy of the paper is always available online for you to browse through!  There are just a few simple steps to use and access our E-edition.

First, make sure you are logged into your https://thesouthern.com account. Then, visit our E-edition page by clicking the "Today's E-Edition" link in the upper left-hand corner if on desktop or click the three-lined menu button and then scroll down to Print Edition if on mobile.

On the E-edition page, you'll find the most recent edition in the top section as well as past editions if you scroll down. To start browsing an edition all you then have to do is click the picture of the edition you wish to read. Once open, you can scroll or swipe down the page, double click to zoom in on a section you want to enlarge and use the arrows or pages menu to navigate to different pages.
