On Monday, The New York Times instituted a new digital subscription policy for content available on nytimes.com.
Here are a brief breakdown:
- Readers will have free access to 20 online articles each month (including slideshows, videos, etc.)
- Home delivery subscribers will have free access to all content
- Viewing the homepage and all sections fronts will remain free
- Links to NYT articles from search engines, blogs, and social media (Facebook, Twitter) will remain readable even if you’ve reached your monthly limit [though you may run into daily limits when accessing articles through search engines)
- More information available at the Digital Subscriptions FAQ: http://www.nytimes.com/content/help/account/purchases/subscriptions-and-purchases.html
At this time, institutional subscriptions to nytimes.com are not available, and the print subscription that library has does not qualify as a home delivery subscription.
The library still provides full text access to the NYT via our database subscriptions (LexisNexis and Academic OneFile). Unfortunately, articles are text only; can be a little confusing to find; and do not contain images.
If you’d like to learn more about reading NYT articles through the library databases, just ask a librarian.
