The Libraries' Factiva subscription to the New York Times contains articles from both the print edition (1969-present) and the online-only content from nytimes.com (2012-present). Images or visualizations accompanying each article are not included.
These NYT subscriptions contain the articles that were published in each daily edition of the print paper; web-exclusive content from nytimes.com is often not included here (see the "New York Times - online content" link above for web-exclusive articles).
These subscriptions are also html full text only, which means they will not include images, advertisements, or other context included in the "as printed" version. To view current articles and full pages of the NYT as they appeared in print, access the print copies on the 9th floor of Bobst, or the microform copies on Lower Level 2 of Bobst.
For articles that appear only on washingtonpost.com, click on the link for the "Factiva: Available from 2007" database. To see the "as printed" version of the Washington Post, click on the link for "PressReader." HTML full text articles are available through the other database links.
You can always use ProQuest Central to access WSJ articles published in the paper. Use Factiva to access WSJ blog articles.
NYU Libraries has limited access to Factiva. If you can't get into the database on your first try, wait a little and try again later.
ProQuest Central and Factiva also provide access to digital-only articles from FT.com. Please be aware that many, if not all, of the databases providing access to FT do not provide access to the most recent month.
For downloadable issues as they appeared in print, access the "Flipster" database. For content published only on www.theatlantic.com (that may not have been included in the as-printed edition) access the Factiva database.
Search and access historical newspaper content from titles including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and many more. Most titles are covered from the beginning of publication, with articles available to download as PDFs.
