For years, the William H. Hannon Library has provided access to the New York Times through databases like U.S. Major Dailies, via ProQuest, and Nexis Uni; but these platforms are optimized for academic research rather than casual reading. This month, we are proud to announce that we now additionally provide access to the consumer edition of the New York Times online, via nytimes.com, for current LMU students, faculty, and staff.
If you already set up access to NYTimes online (previously provided by ASLMU), then there is nothing you need to do. Your access should continue uninterrupted. You can also find the link on our databases page.
If you are a new user, register at accessnyt.com. Once registered, faculty and staff have four years of full account access, after which they must re-authenticate. Students have access until Dec. 31 of the graduation year they choose.
What’s more, you get more than just nytimes.com. LMU students, faculty, and staff also have access to:
- Archives covering Sep. 18, 1851 – Dec. 31, 2002 (5 PDF article downloads from Times Machine per day per user. However, you can get unlimited downloads via U.S. Major Dailies)
- Augmented reality and virtual reality functions found in the mobile app, and NYT stories told through enhanced technology
- Podcasts (including The “Daily” podcast)
- All multimedia, including video, photography, VR features, and new multimedia to come
- Newsletters : Over 80 newsletters such as Well, Climate Forward, In Her Words, and more
- Live Events – conversations with inspiring personalities like Tony Blair on How Russia’s War Will Change the World: A Virtual Event. Teaching 1619 Project: a virtual event for Educators and Librarians and Championing The Truth: a conversation between journalist and librarians on fighting misinformation, remaining balanced, and supporting communities.
- Up-to-date technology to make NYTimes.com accessible with features such as closed caption and screen reader interface
- Spanish and Mandarin Chinese translated versions of NYTimes.com
