Free from the NYT: TimesSelect

ts_left_50off.gif Enjoy New York Times editorials? Sad because you can’t get access to back issues without paying for them?

Be sad no more, there are now two ways to access back issues of the New York Times for free. At the library, the NYT is available through Lexis Nexis, on the Databases by Title list.  If you don’t want to go through the steps required to search it, you may prefer to subscribe to TimesSelect, which is now free to users with a university email address.

According the NYT Web site, a university subscription entitles you to Op-Ed columns, news columns from Business, NewYork/Region, Sports and the International Herald Tribue and access to the Times Archive including 100 free articles per month.

It sounds like a great deal. I’m going to register now.
