Patrons have frequently requested The New York times as a resource for the library, but unfortunately the Times does not deliver to Dawes county. So, we at the LLC found a digital solution and have acquired a site license to nytimes.com! The New York Times contains “all the news that’s fit to print.” The paper, founded in 1851, has won more Pulitzer Prizes than any other news organization and is widely considered to be the newspaper of record. Patrons will have access to all article content found within the Times—over 15.2 million articles—as well as the NYTimes magazine, photo exposés, blogs, and video content. Users must register with a CSC email account and log in to their nytimes.com account for full access.
Contents of the most recent paper are found on the New York Times homepage and content is actively archived. To locate articles by keyword or title, one can utilize the search function in the site’s header. Initial searches can be further refined by date, relevance, result type, author, and the section the article originally appeared. If browsing is more your style or if you are interested in finding articles from a particular time span, then click on Site Map at the bottom of the nytimes.com webpage.
Even though there is a section entitled “Pay Articles,” users have full access to them through their nytimes.com account. Articles in the archive are organized by year then month, but specific days are not specified.
Patrons can access the New York Times the “Find Resources” page on the library website under REFERENCE MATERIALS.
