Why use the NYTimes.com Pass to read The New York Times online?
Without a NYTimes.com subscription or a grouppass through NJIT you would be limited in the number of free full articles (including blog posts, slide shows and other multimedia features) you could read each month.
Do I use my NJIT email address?
Yes, use your NJIT email address to create an account.
What are the restrictions?
You need to be connected to your institution’s network to activate the NYTimes.com Pass. It must be renewed annually. Access to the full text of articles published between 1923 to 1980 is limited to 5 articles per year. Access to the full archives is limited when using mobile apps.
Can I access The Times from off-campus?
Yes, as long as you have previously activated your NYTimes.com Pass from within your institution’s network.
There are NYTimes mobile apps for most phones and tablets, including Kindle Fire. These are included as part of the Academic Pass. Mobile apps for tablets are not part of the Academic Pass. However, you can access NYTimes.com formatted for mobile users by visiting mobile.nytimes.com using your smartphone or tablet browser.
Why am I asked to log in on some occasions and not others?
How long does my academic pass last?
Once you have activated your academic pass, it should allow you full access for 52 weeks (364 days) with no further action on your part. After that, just login again at NYTimes.com/pass with the same credentials you used to register. You can set a calendar reminder to renew your pass each year (see box on this page).
I already have a NYT digital account? What do I do?
At the initial registration page, look for: Already have an account? Log in here. You cannot get a refund for an existing paid account, but you can cancel your account and not pay beyond any time period already paid for. The New York Times Academic Site License has some restrictions that your personal subscription may not have. Consider the options carefully before deciding one way or another.
How can I renew an expired pass?
To renew an expired pass, visit NYTimes.com/pass and select “log in here.” Then use the same log in you used for your old NYTimes.com account. To reset password, go to NYTimes.com/forgot
What content can I access?
The license gives NJIT users access to nearly all New York Times online content, except the crossword puzzle, which requires a separate subscription. You can access the daily newspaper and the archives. With a separate registration you can also access the NYTimes in Education website. You are limited to 5 archived articles per year within the date range 1923-1980.
How do I get to the archives?
Why doesn't a search from the library homepage take me to the digital New York Times?
This is due to a limitation of the SEARCH ALL feature. Your search result will find NYTimes articles available in text only through Nexis UNI and other databases. Once you have the article citation, you can re-search the digital NYTimes to locate the same story in NYTimes digital format if you prefer. Not all NYTimes articles appear in all editions of the newspaper (i.e., print, digital, US edition, NY and regional editions, International editions)
Can I read the New York Times in a foreign language?
Yes, the Times appears in Chinese and Spanish daily. Click the language under the masthead to access.
