New York Times To Charge for Web Access

You may have known it was coming, but this week the New York Times officially announced the details of its digital subscription plans going into effect March 28, and just how much web-based access to Times articles will remain free for U.S. readers without home delivery subscriptions. Whether you access content via computer or a mobile device, access will be variously limited (for example, by the number of full-text articles per calendar month you can read) without a subscription. Explanations and details of the new digital subscriber plans are available here, in a letter from the publisher, and here.

Of course, for Hofstra law students, full-text New York Times articles will continue to be available in Lexis and Westlaw, and in a number of Axinn Library databases. For assistance with access to New York Times content, ask at the Reference Desk.
