Penn Students, Faculty, and Staff Can Now Access The New York Times Online

Posted on

University of Pennsylvania students, faculty, and staff now have access to The New York Times, courtesy of the Penn Libraries. This campus-wide subscription provides digital access via and through tablet and mobile apps.

Penn students, faculty, and staff are invited to activate an account through the Penn Libraries [PennKey login required]. Activation is possible through any device or browser and can be done from any location.

“The Penn Libraries is the university’s hub for personal and academic enrichment, and we’re thrilled to add the outstanding journalism of The New York Times to our growing collection of electronic resources available to faculty, staff, and students,” says Brigitte Weinsteiger, Associate Vice Provost for Collections and Scholarly Communications at the Penn Libraries.

The Penn Libraries also hosts newspaper subscriptions to The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the Financial Times, and patrons can browse databases including Nexis Uni and Newsbank to find fulltext versions of many more publications.

After activating their account, patrons will have the same customizable experience as a new subscriber, with the ability to sign up for individual newsletters, follow favorite topics, explore the historical archive back to 1851, and download the New York Times app.

Please note that subscription access to the New York Times is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff. Affiliated employees with PennKey access to other Penn Libraries electronic resources - from the University of Pennsylvania Health System (HUP, Pennsylvania, and Presbyterian Hospitals) and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia - are also eligible to create accounts.
