Now Online! The Washington Post Website

Posted on by Lauris Olson

Read all about it! Baby pandas, the Capital Weather Gang ... and, oh yes, the 2020 Presidential General Election. The Penn Libraries announces a new campus-wide subscription to The Washington Post website.

This new subscription, live right now, uses Penn campus IP ranges and PennKey authentication to deliver real-time updates from The Washington Post website without paywalls! All you need is your PennKey, although the Lean Library browser plug-in can make it easier on you. 

Our subscription provides searchable fulltext content from 2005 to the present, including photo galleries of the annual Drool at the Pool (also known as Doggie Swim Day).

No need to create a personal WaPo website registration. No need for an individual subscription — unless you want to pay for personal subscriptions to the digital replica version of recent WaPo issues or the WaPo mobile app. Those things are not included in the Penn Libraries campuswide subscription.

Note : We are still ironing out wrinkles in our subscription. Please be patient as access and usability improve.
