Newman Library Continues to Provide The New York Times Digital Edition;
Access to the Wall Street Journal and Other Newspapers,
for Free to Baruch Students, Faculty, and Staff
New and returning Baruch faculty, students, and staff may access The New York Times digital edition for free through an academic license provided by The William & Anita Newman Library and the CUNY Office of Library Services. For the second year, full access to the NYTimes.com and the NYTimes.com smartphone apps is available for 364 days from the date an individual academic pass is activated. CUNY’s Library Services recently signed a new three-year contract with the New York Times after an initial one-year contract was successful.
Details for setting up the academic pass, using one’s Baruch email address, are found at NYTimes.com Academic Pass. Those who already have signed up for the access will receive a renewal notice prior to the anniversary of the start of their access, which requires them to renew the access. Once access is established, Baruch users may access the NYTimes Digital Edition from any network and any ISP worldwide. However, CUNY’s academic license does not include e-reader editions, NYTimes.com tablet apps, premium crosswords or the New York Times crossword apps. NYTimes apps are not supported on all devices. The New York Times help desk should be contacted by email with any questions.
There are also some access limitations to the New York Times archives (back issues) through the Academic Pass. However, Baruch researchers needing archival articles may prefer to use other Newman Library databases that offer access to the complete New York Times archive, back to 1851, without restrictions.
Through the Newman Library’s homepage, users may search “Journals” to learn which databases offer access to current and past issues of newspapers published around the globe. For example, Factiva’s News Pages offers text (not digital) access to The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Barron’s, a New York-based investment weekly, and Forbes, a leading business publication. Factiva may be searched for 9,000 other global publications, and is a resource used by many professionals. Many databases available through the Newman Library’s resources enable students and faculty to set up alerts to receive new articles published in newspapers as well as scholarly journals and practitioner publications. If you have any questions about what resources are available through the Newman Library, ask a reference librarian in person at the library’s reference desk, or remotely through the library’s Ask a Librarian services.
