The New York Times announced last week that it will put up a paywall for non-subscribers. Starting March 28, up to 20 articles a month may be viewed before the online reader is prompted to purchase one of three digital news packages:
“… $15 every four weeks for access to the Web site and a mobile phone app (or $195 for a full year), $20 for Web access and an iPad app ($260 a year) or $35 for an all-access plan ($455 a year). All subscribers who take home delivery of the paper will have free and unlimited access across all Times digital platforms except, for now, e-readers like the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook. Subscribers to The International Herald Tribune, which is The Times’s global edition, will also have free digital access.”
A subscription through the KU Rohrbach Library will, however, keep NY Times printable material free to KU students.
Here’s how to view it through the KU Web site:
Go to http://www.kutztown.edu.
Click the “library” tab.
Click “databases” in the bottom-left corner.
Click “New York Times Image Edition.”
Select current or back issues (to Nov. 2008) of the NY Times, the NY Times Advance Sunday, the NY Times Book Review, and the NY Times Magazine.
