USC Upstate is now providing current students, faculty, and staff complimentary access to The New York Times online. You may access your free subscription on- or off-campus by using any computer or mobile device. The subscription will include up-to-the-minute access to English, Chinese, and Spanish editions.
After registering, you should be able to access the entire newspaper on any device, on or off campus. Many free mobile apps are also available for download.
Why can't I log in? Check to make sure you've activated your account (see above box for directions).
Why am I sometimes asked to log in even though I've registered before? Your browser cache/history may have cleared itself. Visit https://www.nytimes.com/ and log back in.
Why can't I download as many archival articles as I want? This particular subscription is geared toward current, up-to-the-minute access to breaking news. Archival articles may be accessed on a very limited basis, but for more complete research, visit our New York Times Historical Newspaper subscription, which covers events from 1851-2012 (available on A to Z database list).
How do I get mobile apps? After registering, open the newspaper's virtual front page, then look for and click the "mobile apps" link to go to a page featuring all available apps. Many of these may be downloaded directly to your mobile devices (some, like Crosswords, are not part of our subscription). These apps may not be supported on all devices.
Can I share my login information with anyone? No. Sharing your login with those who are not current faculty, staff, or students is a violation of the University's license with The New York Times.
I have another question or problem. Contact a USC Upstate librarian for more information: http://uscupstate.libguides.com/ask
