On March 28, the New York Times began charging for access to its web edition. Most people, except those with subscriptions, are capped at viewing twenty articles each month before charges are levied.
Unfortunately, the New York Times Digital Subscription Plan does not offer institutional subscriptions, which means that the Library will be unable to subscribe on behalf of the campus. We will look into acquiring an Emory site/campus license once such a license becomes available from the NYT.
The new NYT paywall will definitely impact shared computers here in the library, since the 20 article limit applies to public as well as personal computers.
However, you can still access full text of NYT articles through several library databases:
For all of these (except PROQUEST) you will need to select "new york times" from the source list.
Note that these databases only provide access to the text of an article, not images (neither photos, charts, nor page images).
As a reminder, we also have access to the Proquest Historical Newspapers archive of the NYT, which now includes articles from 1851 - 2007 and includes page images, rather than just text.
In addition, the library continues to subscribe to the print NYT. Recent print copies are kept in the newspaper reading room (adjacent to the Matheson Reading Room) until they are replaced by microfilm.
For more information on the Times' new policy, visit their FAQ. Also note that Emory students and faculty qualify for the College Readership Digital Subscription discount program (note: when you enter "emory" in the "Find your college" box, you may get a message that Emory is not included in the plan, so try clearing your browser's cache and/or be sure to choose "Emory University" from a drop down list of college names starting with "E" (and you may need to try this more than once) in order to be recognized -- then you will be prompted to set up a subscription) as well as their education rate for print + digital subscriptions (e.g. Sunday paper + digital subscriptin for $3.75/week).
