In April 2011, the New York Times
implemented a "paywall" on its website, nytimes.com
. Under this policy [full details here
], users can view a maximum of 20 articles per month without charge, but need to purchase a "digital subscription" to go beyond that limit.
Discounted individual subscription rates
are available to students, faculty, and staff with email addresses ending in ".edu".
Beyond that, UC Berkeley is not able to provide special campuswide access to the nytimes.com website. However, we do subscribe to several databases that include full text articles from the New York Times
along with many other newspapers. For links to these, see our News Databases
- Access World News - 1985-present
- Factiva - 1980-present
- LexisNexis Academic - June 1980-present (plus abstracts, 1969-May 1980)
- Historical Newspapers (ProQuest) - 1851-2007
- ProQuest Newspapers - 1980-present.
These are available to anyone using our public computers. UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff members can also connect from off campus
For those wishing to read the Times
on paper, the Morrison Library
and the Newspapers/Microforms Room
both have current issues.
