I Need To Find...New York Times
From Kresge Library
Beginning on March 28, 2011, the New York Times (NYT) began erecting a porous “paywall” on its web site that will limit the number of full text articles that users can access for free on the web, depending on how the articles are accessed, and will start selling digital subscriptions for unrestricted online access to their content. There are a number of ways members of the Ross School of Business community can still access Times content despite this paywall.
 Access to NYT from Times' web site
Those who do not subscribe to the NYT will still be able to read all NYTimes.com front page content and up to 20 additional NYTimes.com articles per month, as well as browse — but not click through to read — the “Top News” sections of the Times' smartphone and tablet applications, without paying.
 Access to NYT articles from other web sites and social media outlets
In addition, non-subscribers will have access to articles found through search (limited to five per day from major search engines), blogs and social networks like Facebook and Twitter, even if they have exceeded their 20-article reading limit.
Links to individual articles posted on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere on the web, pasted into email messages, etc., will continue to provide access to the full text of those individual articles, regardless of whether the user clicking on those links has a NYT subscription or not. A Twitter feed that will provide links to all NYT articles has been created, @freeNYTimes, and access to all NYT articles will apparently continue to be available to non-subscribers via that.
 Access to NYT from library news databases
The easiest way to get to the New York Times is via NYT Launch Page on Academic OneFile (via Gale/Cengage)
- You may choose a day and browse articles (they will be presented in alphabetical order).
- Once you have chosen a date, you can limit to the Business Section by selecting the term from the limits menu for sections on the left side of the screen.
- There is a search window as well to see articles in that publication.
- Additional information about this resource:
- Here is a link to the main Academic OneFile (Gale/Cengage) page.
- Academic OneFile updates daily - with new content arriving by mid-day. The data available is from 1985 to the present. Searching is full text.
- Through these links, you will find the larger articles from the NYT.
Other databases at Kresge that have the New York Times include:
- Factiva (6/1/1980 - present)
- LexisNexis Academic (6/1/1980 - present)
- Nexis.com (6/1/1980 - present)

Includes searchable, full-image access to every page of every issue of the printed New York Times, including all articles, photos, illustrations, ads, everything.
 Creating Persistent Links to NYT articles via Gale/Cengage (to share via CTools)
You can easily create a persistent link to articles from the New York Times through Gale/Cengage by following these steps. This will allow Ross community members to view the full text from wherever they are.
- Go to the New York Times is via NYT Launch Page on Academic OneFile (via Gale/Cengage)
- Search for an article and open it to view the text.
- On the bottom of the page after the article, you will see a Document URL - it will look like this: "http://go.galegroup.com/ps/i.do?id=GALE%7CA174553546&v=2.1&u=lom_umichanna&it=r&p=AONE&sw=w"
- Copy and paste that URL into a text editor (like Notepad).
- In the front of that URL, add this string: "http://libproxy.bus.umich.edu/login?"
- This will be the persistent URL for this article. It will look like this: http://libproxy.bus.umich.edu/login?url=http://go.galegroup.com/ps/i.do?id=GALE%7CA303282995&v=2.1&u=lom_umichanna&it=r&p=AONE&sw=w (this will work for Ross Community members only).
- You may share that link via email or CTools. You might use tinyurl or a comparable service to make it a smaller link (so there are no wrapping problems via email.)
