New York Times Access: Home

Digital Access via NYT Website

  • Since March 2011, the New York Times (NYT) has implemented a new digital subscription model for its online content.  Users are limited to the number of free articles that can be viewed.
  • The NYT is available through our databases such as Lexis-Nexis Academic Universe, however access isn't equivalent to the content found via the online NYT.
  • Some free access is offered on the NYT site, but restrictions limit the number of articles one can view during a given time period (20 articles per month per user).
  • Full access to the NYT digital content is available to students, staff and faculty on an individual subscription basis only.  The NYT does offer a discounted rate to UWSP students, staff and faculty.  Click here for more information.
  • The NYT does not offer institutional subscriptions to libraries or universities for its online access.
