Please note: If you have previously registered your email address on The New York Times site, you will click the "Already have an account?" "Log in here" link (below the "Create Account" button).

Existing paid New York Times subscribers must cancel their paid subscription before authenticating via the Stanford Libraries' funded program. Before you cancel, please be advised that this subscription does not include Games, Cooking, or The Athletic modules.

Once registered, students will have access until 12/31 of the graduation year they choose, and faculty/staff will have 4 years of full account access, after which they must re-authenticate.

The New York Times Academic Site License program does includes unique access to education and teaching content. Once you have created your account, you will also have access to The New York Times in Education website and The Learning Network.
