The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has negotiated an inter-consortial offer that provides unlimited access to all students, faculty, and staff to the New York Times News. Lyrasis partners with the Center for Research Libraries to make this offer available to Lyrasis member libraries.
The New York Times, published in New York City since 1851, is an important source of reporting, information, and opinion, covering politics, finance, health, science, culture, the arts, sports, and fashion in the U.S. and abroad. Formats of news coverage include multimedia articles, live feeds, videos, audio, graphics, newsletters and more. Content such as video, data infographics, and 3D interactives are only available directly via NYTimes.com and The NYT News App and not through aggregators or databases. The New York Times Live briefing has also become a critical resource for readers as they work to stay informed on breaking news and the biggest stories of our lifetime. Live feeds are only available in the report in its native format, whether at NYTimes.com or the NYT News App. An increasing number of our news stories now contain visual and interactive. The New York Times also publishes translations of select articles in Spanish language and Chinese language editions. Access to New York Times InEducation is included in the academic site license.
http://www.nytimes.com content is also enriched by inclusion of longitudinal data from syndicates and data sources such as Thomson Reuters and AccuWeather. For example, interactive charts enable users to view the status and changes in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and other financial indexes in detail for daily, weekly and in some cases hourly periods between January 1930 and the present day.
For more background and information on the NYT content, features, terms of service and permitted uses, please see the CRL reviews at: http://edesiderata.crl.edu/resources/new-york-times.
Pricing is based on the student FTE and faculty headcount and current, existing subscriptions. Subscription years are either calendar year or "fiscal year," i.e., July 1 - June 30th. All subscriptions will begin on the first or third Monday of a month and end on either the first Sunday in January or July. The NYT provides subscriptions on an exact 52-week cycle (364 days), not a 365-day period. Subscriptions may be pro-rated for the first year.
The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has negotiated a central license agreement with the best possible terms. Participating institutions placing new orders will be asked to agree to abide by the terms at that time. Accessibility documentation is available for this resource.
