Library Apps & Mobile Sites: New York Times

Coverage

Articles, features, interviews, obituaries, columns, book reviews, and still image, audio, video, and data, text and multimedia published on the site since launch in 1996, with the exception of crosswords and some syndicated materials. The site also includes a growing amount of text content published in the print edition of The New York Times between its founding in 1851 and the present day. The Times claims that all articles published from 1981 onwards are available on the site. Coverage of pre‐1981 material is more sporadic, but growing.

Restrictions

  • Crosswords are not included in this subscription.
  • Users can share a video, link to a video, or attach a video to a blog but cannot download a video to a computer.
  • There is a 4 articles per month limitation for each user on content from 1923‐
    1986 only. The library community hopes this limitation will be increased later in 2014
