Why use an Academic Pass to read The New York Times online?

On March 28, 2011, The New York Times began charging for access to its online edition. Most people, except those with subscriptions, are capped at viewing 10 articles each month before charges are levied.

The New York Times paywall impacts shared computers in the library and throughout campus since the 10-article limit applies to public and personal computers and devices.

In addition to reading The New York Times online with an Academic Pass, you may also read articles from The New York Times in databases, in print, and on microfilm by using library and College Council resources. See the New York Times @ Emory Guide for further information.
