Sign up for the New York Times today!

New York Times Logo

Did you know that the library has a subscription to the New York Times?

It works a little differently than our other resources, but it’s easy to use after the initial sign-up!

Here’s how it works:

To register at the New York Times site, you have to use this link

Please use your Bard email address. Students will be prompted to give a graduation date. Staff and faculty will need to renew their accounts every 4 years.

Do you already have a paid account and want to cancel your subscription? You will need to contact NYT Customer Care before trying to sign up for the complimentary Bard subscription. [email protected] / 800-591-9233 / Chat 

Our subscription covers mostly current articles and unfortunately, NYT Cooking and the Crosswords are not included.

Are you looking for an older article? Your best bet would be to use The Historical New York Times , it covers 1850 to 3 years ago.

Once you have your account set-up, you can just go to, no need to visit the library’s page after initial set-up.
