Access the New York Times via Library Resource

By - Research & Instruction Librarian April 14th, 2011

Several folks have inquired recently about accessing the New York Times via library resources.

Presumably, this is due to recent changes in access-related policy at the New York Times.

The full archive is no longer freely available on the NYTs website.  Currently, those with an existing print subscription have full access to online content.  Personal digital-only subscriptions are also offered. Those without any subscription may view up to 20 articles per month.

The library’s Proquest Periodicals subscription will provide access to the NYTimes (East Coast edition).  This is the fastest way to get there: Click HERE.

Although it does look/navigate differently than the old interface, the article content is the same.

If you are off-campus & need access to this resource, please take the following steps:

  • Login in to using your SPS username and password.
  • Click the Ohrstrom Library link.
  • Select Proquest Periodicals from the database menu (see below):
  • Once in Proquest Periodicals, use the Publications search tool to locate the New York Times:

Click and browse/search!

If you are an educator, you may be interested in the New York Times classroom edition program.

Please email lsanborn at sps dot edu with any questions about locating periodicals from library databases.

Periodical Pick: Newspaper Feeds

By - Systems Librarian October 21st, 2008

Lisa Laughy – Archives Assistant

The sidebar of Ohrstrom Blog now features feeds from all of the daily newspapers that we subscribe to with the exception of The Wall Street Journal.  If you are interested in a quick headline fix take a moment to check out today’s feeds, or add these feeds to your own feed reader using the links at the end of the post.

The Wall Street Journal doesn’t offer your average RSS feed, but instead has this overly clever flashy widget / gadget.  I can’t seem to format it to fit the width of the blog sidebar, so I have put it on this post page where it can spin and whirl in all its glory. You can change news categories by clicking on “Edit” in the upper right hand corner of the widget, which makes it whiz around like a slot machine.  You can then use the up and down arrows on the bottom to scroll through the headlines. I have included a permalink to this post in the sidebar with the rest of the RSS newspaper feeds.

Add these feeds to your reader and stay in touch with world beyond Millville:

Boston Globe Feeds

Concord Monitor Feed (local news feed – others available at by clicking the orange RSS feed buttons in the news category headings)

New York Times Feeds

Union Leader Feed

Wall Street Journal Newsreel Widget Add it to Facebook, Google, as a Vista desktop widget, and many other applications.
