Renewing Your NYTimes.com Pass

We are pleased to have been able to provide our students, staff, and faculty with online access to The New York Times for a little more than a year now. This a good time to remind everyone that the NYTimes.com Pass is good for one year at a time for faculty and staff, or until your anticipated graduation date for students.

If you’ve been using NYTimes.com and find that you can no longer access articles or have a limited number of articles available, please go to their activation website to renew your account.

If you’re not familiar with using NYTimes.com through the library, be aware that it works a little differently than most of our other online resources. Instead of clicking on a link on the library website and accessing the resource with your UH username, you have to go to their account activation site to create a personal account. You can then go directly to NYTimes.com and log in with the account you created.

For more about what you get with the NYTimes.com Pass, please see this blog post from last November.
