Is it possible to read the New York times from OPL website? Thank you

I would like to read the New York Times articles (more than the 20/month offered on their website. Since OPL is a print subscriber could the digital version be made available to OPL users? Thank you

While we don't subscribe to the Times itself digitally, you can actually find all of the articles using one of our other databases.  If you go to our Resource Center page, you will see a list of categories.  

While you would think to choose Newspapers, this is NOT the one you want.  Right below that is a listing for 'Research (General)'.  When you click on that, the middle column will show listings and the one you want is General OneFile.  This database has articles from many magazines, journals, and newspapers - including the New York Times.  

Once you hit the Search button that pops up in the third column, you will need to enter your library card number when you use a computer outside the library.

A new page should pop up for Gale's General OneFile.  Above the search field on that page there is a tab for Publication Title.  Click that, enter New York Times and hit enter and you will see the listing of the most recent articles.

Then, using the Search limits on the left to narrow down to what you want to read (subjects, or sections like News, Sports, etc., and the date[s]), you should be able to find what you're looking for.

The actual Times digital subscription is financially quite prohibitive for libraries, so hopefully this will work as a solution.

Thanks for your question and suggestion!
