Library Provides The New York Times Digital Edition for Free to
Baruch Students, Faculty, and Staff
Baruch faculty, students and staff now have access to read The New York Times Digital Edition for free through an academic license provided by The William and Anita Newman Library and the CUNY Office of Library Services. Full access to the NYTimes.com and the NYTimes.com smartphone apps is available for a period of 364 days from the date an individual academic pass is activated.
Details for setting up an academic pass, using one’s Baruch email address, are found at http://bit.ly/nytbaruch.
Once registered on the site, Baruch users may access the NYTimes Digital Edition from any network and any ISP worldwide.
CUNY’s academic license does not include e-reader editions, NYTimes.com tablet apps, premium Crosswords or the New York Times crosswords apps. NYTimes apps are not supported on all devices.
Arthur Downing, Vice President for Information Services and Dean of Baruch’s William and Anita Newman Library, noted that by establishing their academic passes, students, faculty and staff may have full access to current and past New York Times articles, with the exception of the years 1923 through 1980. Academic pass users may access up to 5 free articles published between the years 1923 through 1980 for the duration of their passes. Pass users have unlimited access to the New York Times archived articles outside the years 1923 through 1980. Baruch researchers needing articles may prefer to use other Newman Library databases that offer the 2014 New York Times editions and the complete archives dating back to 1851 without access restrictions.
The initial agreement with the New York Times for the academic access is for one year, with anticipated renewals by the CUNY Office of Library Services and individual CUNY libraries, which are jointly paying for the access, according to Downing. CUNY joins other schools, such as Princeton University, Brown University, Penn State, and Emory University, in offering their students, faculty and staff the academic pass to the New York Times digital edition.
