    Online Access to the New York Times (Including the Education Module)

    The Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library is pleased to announce that UD students and faculty now have full-text access to the New York Times from its beginning in 1851 through the current issue.  

    To obtain this access go to and register.  Registration has to be done on a campus computer.  After registering you can access NYT from any location on or off campus by going to and using the log-in link on the top right corner of the page.

    In addition to the general NYT content, UD users have access to a NYT education module called "New York Times inEDUCATION".  This education module includes 16 different academic areas and will include more in the near future.  Users also have to register on campus for this education module.  The registration is separate from the registration for general content and should be done using this link:  The same user name and password can be used for each registration but separate registrations are required to have access to both the general content and the education module content.
