On March 28, 2011, the New York Times began charging for access to its Web edition. Most people, except those with subscriptions, are capped at viewing 10 articles each month before charges take effect. The Academic Pass gives you access to content without the cap.
If you have an existing paid NYtimes.com digital subscription, you are not eligible for an Academic Pass. You should continue to access the Times via your own subscription.
The Brown Academic Pass site license has some restrictions that your personal subscription may not have. Also, the Library is not guaranteeing access beyond one year at this time. Consider the options carefully before deciding one way or another.
Site license access does not include all of the NYTimes apps, e-reader editions or Premium Crosswords or crossword apps. Site license users do not have the ability to share their digital access. Access to articles from 1987 to date is unlimited, but access to articles from 1923-1986 is limited to 5 per 24 hour period. Additional restrictions may apply.
Yes, as long as you have registered using your Brown.edu e-mail address and obtained your Academic Pass.
There are mobile apps for iPhone/iPod Touch (IOS 5.0+), Android (OS 2.1+), and Windows (7.5 O.S.) phones; these are included as part of the Academic Pass. Mobile apps for tablets are not part of the Academic Pass. However, you can access the the NYTimes.com mobile site (mobile.nytimes.com) or Times Skimmer (nytimes.com/skimmer) using your smartphone or tablet running one of the above operating systems.
Yes, but you will need to login using the URL above, have your Brown.edu e-mail address verified, and pick-up your Academic Pass. You will not need to register for another NYTimes.com account.
This may be because your browser may clear its Web cache/history if it is set to do so. In such cases you will need to login back into to NYTimes.com, but there is no need to get another Academic Pass.
No. Only current students, faculty and staff will have access via the Academic Pass.
