The library is proud to announce that it has been able to negotiate New York Times Online subscriptions for the University community.
Students will particularly enjoy the convenience of being able to access the latest issues of the New York Times as well as historical content back to 1851. They will have a well written, researched and curated source of news at their fingertips. The library hopes a resource with such relevancy to current events will spark discussion outside of the classroom thereby creating a more informed student body.
Faculty can enjoy the ease of incorporating current content into their courses as well as being able to access the New York Times in Education product. The New York Times in Education product allows faculty to develop general instructional strategies based on learning outcomes. Students can also use this product to develop co-curricular activities when they are on-campus.
The NYT Online can be used for much more than just searching articles or reading today’s news. Users can subscribe to newsletters such as The Edit where articles are matched to academic majors. News alerts can be sent to mobile devices based on personal interests and needs. There is a treasure trove of videos, photography, and other multi-media resources available. Users can even save recipes from the food section to their own recipe box.
