The library does have a subscription the New York Times through a few of our databases.

If you start from the library homepage,  and click on the "Journals by Title" link under the "Find Books and Articles" category, you can access the E-Journal Portal (FGCU ID number needed for off-campus access). This is where you can search for journal, newspaper, or magazine titles and see if the library has access online and in what databases the title is held in full-text. Once you are in the E-Journal Portal, type New York Times in as the journal title and you'll see that we get the newspaper in several databases. The database in the list called "New York Times" is probably the first place to look. Once in the database, you can browse the paper by date or search within the publication for articles on a topic.

Note that this type of access to the the NYT does not provide you with images from the paper nor does it show you the articles the way the looked on the printed page. The content will also only correspond to what was in the print edition of the paper. The NYT online website may have additional "online only" content that we don't get in our database subscription.

If you want to see images of the pages of the paper as they were printed, we have back issues from 2008 to 3 months ago in "digital microfilm" which will be scanned version of the printed paper. To access these, search the E-Journal Portal for New York Times, and choose the ProQuest Digital Microfilm from the list of databases that offer access.
