Print: One copy of the printed New York Times is delivered by mail to Coe Library each day. These papers are available on Level 1 of Coe Library in the Current Journals section. The paper is for in-library use only. Click this link to view the catalog entry for the print version, which includes the issues that are available.


Digital: Online access to the most recent edition of the NYT is available through the UW Libraries' subscription to ProQuest Newsstand database. You must be a UW student, staff member, or faculty to access this resource. Access is available from a UW computer or off-campus (system will prompt you for a WyoWeb/UW username/password). Public / Non-UW patrons can only access the paper from the public terminals in the UW Libraries.

In the Newsstand database there are two versions of the NYT available: New York Times (Late Edition, East Coast) and New York Times (Online). The Late Edition version contains all articles. However, the Online version is not the complete paper. Only select articles are available in the online version. Neither version contains photos or graphs.

Each of these versions of the paper is searchable. At the bottom of each page is a "Search within" box where keywords may be entered. The search is limited to that day's paper. Articles from either version of the NYT may be printed, emailed, or saved to a citation management application.

If a specific past issue of the NYT is needed, this FAQ describes the process to locate that paper in the ProQuest Newsstand database.

Contact the Coe Library Help Desk if assistance is needed in learning to use the ProQuest Newsstand database.

The New York Times on-line Readership Program (also known as the "Academic Pass") was canceled Spring 2016 to save money. In addition, the free copies of the daily paper are no longer available. However, patrons can still access the most recent paper from the NYT.

Limited free access to articles is available to patrons at the NYT website: This website contains images, video, and other media. This access is not associated with any library or UW subscriptions. Access limitations as established by the NYT Company apply to use by patrons.
