New York Times

As of September 19, 2007, the New York Times has eliminated charging fees to certain sections of their Web site, providing free access to a huge portion of their news content. Readers will be able to access articles from 1987 to the present as well as older material from1851 to 1922 with selected content between the years 1923 to 1986.

The San Francisco Public Library continues to provide full-text articles to the New York Times through the New York Times Historical database, covering 1851 to 3 years ago. The Proquest Newspapers database includes more recent articles (text only), covering over 300 U.S. international and national news publications from 1979 to the present. You will need a San Francisco Public library card to access these databases from the “Articles and Databases” link under “Articles & News.”

Here at the Magazines and Newspapers Center, you can access the entire run of the New York Times on microfilm in its original format, complete with graphics and photographs, dating back to 1857.
