General Newspaper Information

ASRC and CUNY members have access to numerous newspapers. Below are 3 specific newspapers which you have Digital Access to which may be of specific interest to ASRC and CUNY members.

New York Times Digital Subscription

The New York Times Digital is now available to all CUNY students, faculty and staff! The CUNY account now entitles all people with and email domains to acquire a subscription to the digital NYTimes. Once an account is created, access is available from anywhere with a NYTimes login.

Anyone who initiates an account will have an active subscription for one year from the date he/she creates the account. If a patron already has an annual subscription to the NYTimes, he/she can cancel it and will receive a refund. However, if the patron only has a monthly subscription, the New York Times will not issue a refund for that month.

The academic digital subscription works as a regular digital NYTimes subscription with two exceptions:

  1. the academic subscription does not include an app for a tablet. Apps are available for smart phones but tablet users should access the NYTimes at, and
  2. the academic subscription limits the number of archives articles from 1923 to 1980 that can be downloaded.
