New York Times @ Bluffton University


Do I need to be on-campus to set up an account or to login?

You do not need to be on campus. All you need is your email address.

I've already set up an account, but when I access the New York Times through the Bluffton database list, I'm still blocked after reading 10 articles in a month. Why is that?

When you access the New York Times in our database list and have reached the NYT website, look for the first part of your email address in the top right corner of the page.  You may need to log in again.

How do I search the NYT?

There is a Search link near the top left corner of the NYT homepage. Clicking on this link will open a single search box. Enter your search terms. The results page will list articles, but will also offer options on the left side of the screen to refine your results (e.g. date range). The latter option will allow you to put in a specific timeframe.

Can I include links to articles in Moodle or in a syllabus?

Yes.  Find the permalink under the arrow with other social media options when viewing the article you'd like your students to read. Students should be able to access the linked article without being prompted to create an account.

Can I access other language editions of the NYT?

Yes. Access the NYT as usual. Above the New York Times banner at top center, you will see links to the Chinese and Spanish versions.
