The New York Times doesn't offer libraries a subscription to NYTimes.com for a price within our library budget.

You can access content by using the database Factiva. From the library's homepage under Research Resources, click on Search Databases > F> Factiva.

If you are looking for a specific article, type the title in the search box on the Factiva landing page.

If you want to search by topic or read the current news, here's how:

On the Factiva landing page, on the menu across the top, click "News Pages > Factiva Pages" . You will see the current issues of several papers –  including the NYT & WSJ.  Please note that the content of online sources may differ from the app version.

Alternately, you can search the html version of the New York Times if you go to the library's homepage under Research Resources and click on FIND JOURNALS. Type New York Times in the search box and hit enter. Scroll down to the entry for New York Times Online (ProQuest Central) Click on the link and it will take you to the articles that appeared in the online version.The ProQuest version doesn't look like the NYTimes.com that individuals subscribe to. Unfortunately, the NYT doesn't offer that to libraries for a price within our library budget.

Another option: The New York Times offers a discount subscription to university faculty, staff and students. It requires using your AU email address. Take a look at NYTimes.com/collegesavings  In 2019 the cost was $1 per week for students. Most major newspapers offer similar discounts to students, faculty and staff.

From the library's homepage under Research Resources > Search Databases >  you can access the online version of the Washington Post & Financial Times
