getting around the New York Times paywall

It’s old news at this point, so you probably know that the New York Times implemented a paywall last March. The paywall means that readers have limited free access to online articles (10 per month, down from 20 at the launch of the paywall). There are exceptions if you follow a link to a Times article from an outside source (like Facebook) or, of course, if you pay for content.

If you’ve run into problems accessing New York Times articles and don’t want to pay for it, we’ve got the solution for you! Holman Library already pays for online access to the Times through our subscription to ProQuest. Read today’s New York Times online in ProQuest from your home, office, or anywhere else you have an internet connection.

To find ProQuest, first go to the library home page. Select Databases by Subject and you will see a link to ProQuest in the Getting Started menu on the right. Inside ProQuest, you can use the Publications tab to browse specific issues of the paper or search by keyword.
