What is included in our subscription?

URI’s site license provides full access to the New York Times on the newspaper’s website and via the NYTimes phone and tablet apps.

Current URI students, staff, and faculty have unlimited access to New York Times content back to 1851. Access includes the Spanish and Chinese editions.

New York Times content published between 1851 and 2002 is available via the TimesMachine. Note that for articles published between 1923-1980, access is limited to 5 PDF downloads per day. (For this content, additional options are available; see below.)

The URI community also has access to New York Times inEducation, a curated site of articles by topic with learning tools such as classroom discussion questions.

Not included are the crossword puzzles and the cooking app.
