There are several access points to the New York Times online:

  1. ProQuest Historical Newspapers (1851-2014) provides a great way to see the long history of the New York Times, exactly as printed.
  2. ProQuest Recent Newspapers (2008-present, except for the last two months) provides access to the New York Times as printed. 
  3. Nexis Uni (1980-present) -- To access text-only articles, click on the Advanced Search section of the top box, and type New York Times in the source box.
  4. Factiva Dow Jones (1980-present) -- This resource has the past 15 days of the New York Times broken out into sections (Front Page, Arts, Obituaries, Foreign Desk, Editorials, etc.) in its News Pages. Articles going back to June 1980 are available using the Search Builder.

See the Franklin Catalog record for the New York Times to see other access points.
