I think since our New York Times is delivered by Mail, we are considered home delivery.  I have signed up for a username and password and supposedly, the following applies.  We also have the microfilm which is 2 or 3 months behind.  We are a small school so helping a student is not a big deal with a username and password.  I am not sure how that would translate to a larger school.

Yes. Print subscribers to The New York Times get a free All Digital Access subscription. This package includes free, unlimited access to on any device, plus the full range of NYTimes apps for your smartphone (iPhone, Android-powered phones, BlackBerry), your tablet (iPad) and your computer (Times Reader 2.0 and the NYTimes App for the Chrome Web Store).

To activate your digital subscription, you'll need to connect your home delivery subscription to your account. If you haven't already done so, visit this page to connect your accounts.

Free, unlimited access is provided to all print subscribers, no matter what type of subscription you have (daily, weekday, Weekender, etc.). You'll also qualify for free digital access if your home delivery is provided by a third party (rather than by The New York Times directly).

Please note that free access is for home delivery customers only. If you purchase single copies of the newspaper at a newsstand or other retailer, you will need to purchase a digital subscription separately.

Digital subscription benefits for print subscribers also include the Replica Edition. Please note that e-reader editions (Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo Reader) are not free to print subscribers.

Home delivery subscribers to the International Herald Tribune will receive free, unlimited access to

Our EBSCO support contact says there is an institutional rolling 90-day plan for online access, but it has to be ordered direct.  I've not yet been able to find anything about online institutional subscriptions on the NYT site.  I did email their customer support department, and am awaiting a reply.

Does anyone else have information on this?

Thanks - Jeff

I just became aware that the New York Times will soon start charging online readers who want to read more than 20 articles per month. Since our transition from traditional microfilm to the ProQuest Digital Microfilm product (which has a 2-3 month lag time in filming), we have relied on our print subscription and to fill the gap.

Anyone else have plans or suggestions on how to proceed in light of the new fees?
