Accessing the New York Times

As part of the New York Times Readership Program (the same program that brings free NYT newspapers to many campus locations), UW now has electronic access to the online version of the New York Times. 

Here's how to access it:

University of Wyoming students, faculty, and staff should visit from any location on or off campus to register.  First-time users must register (click on the blue box that says "Register") with a valid University of Wyoming email address.  You must use your email account or you will not be able to register.  The New York Times will send a verfication email with a link to your email account. 

After clicking on the link in the verification e-mail, users will receive an email with a verification link.  Once you've got your account set up, to log in you should use the same link to claim an Academic Pass:  

An NYT Academic Pass is valid for 24 hours from the time when you sign in.  If 24 hours has passed you will simply need to log in again to regain access.  Because we have 530 passes available in a 24 hour period, there is the off chance that you will not be able to access the New York Times via the Academic Pass program.  We don't anticipate this being a problem.

* The New York Times Readership Program electronic access does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps.  Pass users receive access to the New York Times archives, including five free articles from 1923 through 1986 for their 24 hours of access; archive articles outside that date range are not subject to that limit.

*If you have an existing New York Times digital subscription associated with your email account, you must cancel that subscription to use this service.

If you have questions or problems logging in, please contact the Coe Reference Desk at 307-766-2070 or via email.
