The library has a subscription to the New York Times digital edition. This is the web version of the New York Times, rather than a database version. It includes full access to all articles dating back to 1851 right from a mobile device or a computer. You can register to have free, personal access through this new subscription. Here are the steps:
- Using a student.elgin.edu or elgin.edu email account, create a personal account for full access to NYT from 1851-present.
- Account registration works best in a Chrome browser.
- You only need to register at this link once. After that, you can go directly to nytimes.com and login with your personal account.
Access to the New York Times in text form for student research is still available through the library’s newspaper databases.
