Avoid the New York Times paywall

On March 25, 2011, The New York Times implemented its paywall. Now anyone who views more than 20 articles per month at http://www.nytimes.com will be charged a fee. Individual subscribers to the print newspaper have unlimited access to the website. The Marygrove College Library and other libraries are working with the Times to provide similar unlimited access via our institutional subscription.

In the meantime, there are several well-documented loopholes around the paywall. You can also continue to read the print version of the Times in the library, or access the Times online from 1980 to the present via several of the library’s databases (this requires a Marygrove login).

If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of your librarians (313.927.1346) or leave a comment below.
