Remember to renew! Your UI New York Times subscription needs to be renewed annually; if you are receiving messages that you have exceeded your 10 monthly articles, but previously had full access to the New York Times, you will need to renew your subscription. Follow the instructions below to renew.

In partnership with the Office of the Provost & Executive Vice President, the UI Library offers all UI students, faculty, and staff online access to the New York Times. This means that members of the UI community have full access to, New York Times mobile apps, and New York Times in Education.

The access provided is equivalent to the “Basic” subscription level and does not include the crossword or the Insider section. Due to copyright limitations, access to archival content from 1923 to 1980 is limited to a set number of downloads per user per day.
