Today’s New York Times:

  • in print on the Lower Level of Davis Family Library
  • text only (no images) in several databases listed at go/journals

Past Issues:

  • 1857-2009 in ProQuest’s Historical Newspapers (pdf images; searchable)
  • 1857-2012 on microfilm in Davis Family Library (useful if you know the date of the issue(s) or you want to browse) – film no. 8
  • 1857 to a few months ago on digital microfilm (useful if you know the date of the issue(s) or you want to browse)
  • text only, 1980-present in several databases listed at go/journals

What happened to the digital subscription passes?

The Student Government Association (SGA) was providing online access to Middlebury students, faculty and staff until NYT discontinued that program…which no one on campus realized until our access ceased (there’s more detail in this Campus article). The Times’ new program is extremely expensive, and the library’s funding for this fiscal year was set last year. Partial access is still available; would that full access were, and we wish an immediate solution were at hand. We haven’t given up, though, and are still working on the problem. Please feel free to contact Douglas Black, Head of Collections Management, for more information.

Links to our remaining options for online access access to the NYT are in the Journals list New York Times. (You can get to this list on your own by clicking on the “Journals” tab on the library home page and searching for “new york times.”) For today’s paper, select “Global Newsstream,” a database that provides NYT articles with full text but without images. Need help? Ask a librarian.
