The New York Times Online includes not only the same articles and feature text and images that appear in the print edition, but also an array of additional resources including video, audio, graphics and data content.
The New York Times, published in New York City since 1851, is the largest metropolitan newspaper in the United States. It has long been an important source of reporting, information and opinion, covering politics, finance, health, science, culture, the arts, sports and fashion in the U.S. and abroad, with special emphasis on the New York metropolitan area.
The New York Times interface is compatible with most web browsers used by computers, mobile devices and tablets.
The New York Times has recently provided the capability to have an institution-wide site license for online access. Although individual online access has been available for individuals, site licenses for academic institutions are just now beginning to be available.
“The University of Delaware Library has wanted to provide online access to The New York Times for some time,” said Susan Brynteson, vice provost and May Morris University Librarian. “I am so pleased that an academic site license is now available and that the library can provide this access to the University of Delaware community.”
The academic site license to The New York Times digital edition was brokered by the Center for Research Libraries and a group of academic libraries in the U.S. The University of Delaware Library is a member of the Center for Research Libraries, an international consortium of university, college and independent research libraries based in Chicago, and was among the libraries that assisted in brokering the agreement.
As required by The New York Times, access to NYTimes.com requires each individual user to create a NYTimes.com account. This must be done from an on-campus computer using a University of Delaware email address. Once the account has been confirmed and activated, users can login with the registered account from anywhere. Instructions for creating an account are available at this website.
The University of Delaware Library also provides online access to The New York Times from 1851 to 2009 through ProQuest Historical Newspapers along with access to many other newspapers through the databases ProQuest Newsstand, LexisNexis Academic and Gannett Newsstand.
In addition, the electronic library, which provides a rich array of resources online, is available 24/7.
The web page of the University of Delaware Library provides an online gateway to the electronic library including DELCAT, WorldCat Local, Research Guides, databases, electronic journals, electronic books, electronic newspapers, finding aids for Special Collections, reserve materials, interlibrary loan and much, much more. A mobile-friendly version of the University of Delaware Library web page is available.
