Read the New York Times more easily!

Looking for more ways to read the news? We have a new subscription available to patrons in the library and to Andover cardholders at home: The New York Times Direct Digital Access! Instead of our searchable New York Times access which we still have, this provides daily access to the full text of the New York Times digital edition. It's like having a personal subscription but you just have to go through the library's website to access.

From inside the library or on one of our library computers, clicking on the New York Times [Direct Digital Access] link via the Articles & Databases tab will bring you directly to the digital New York Times. There you have access to: NYT articles published between 1851-1922 and 1981-current; International, Spanish, and Chinese editions; real-time market data and company research pages covering 11,000+ public and private companies; and more. This is great if you like the read the news but quickly run out of those free articles. It's also great for students and researchers!

If you are at home or using a NYT mobile app, just visit the same Articles & Databases page and choose the section where you can redeem a digital access code. That will give you 24 hour access from home or on a device for Andover cardholders.
