How do I access the New York Times online?


Goucher students, staff, and faculty have free access to the New York Times online.

There are two options for accessing the NYT:

1. Access 1980-present through Proquest. This option is a searchable database that limits the search to the NYT from 1980-present.

2. Access 1851-present through the NYT website, using a special Goucher account (instructions below. This option allows you to search the NYT regular website, so it looks and feels like you are searching on the web, rather than a special database. 

To access the NYT using option 2, follow these instructions:

Create an account:

  • Go to
  • In the "Find School" box, type Goucher, and select "Goucher College" when it appears.
  • Follow the instructions to create your account.

You do not need to be on campus to access the New York Times.
