Q. How do I get access to the New York Times?

  Sep 03, 2019

The New York Times website is not available as an institutional, daily subscription but it's available in these formats, and through these services:

  • The best current coverage (i.e., last 3 months) is available via Factiva. (This is text only content, not image-based.) Choose "News Pages" from the navigation; newspaper content can be selected by newspaper name, date and section. 
  • Nexis Uni lets you search Times content from 1980 to the present. (This is also text only content, not image-based.) 
  • Online through Proquest Recent Newspapers, from 2008+ (3 month time lag); an image-based product with search capabilities. Traditional microfilm from 1857-2009 is available on site only.
  • Online through ProQuest Historical Newspapers as an image-based, searchable archive starting with 1851 and including everything except the most recent four years.

The print version of the newspaper is also available at the Mugar, Science & Engineering, Pardee, and Pickering Libraries.
