New York Times @ Westminster College

Westminster College has access to the New York Times back to 1851. This access includes indexed articles as well as PDF files of images from the print edition. There is no single link to access and search all New York Times content. Instead, there are two links, depending on the time period of the content.

Please access the New York Times via one of the following links:

  • 1851-2016 (ProQuest Historical Newspapers)
  • 1980-present (U.S. Major Dailies: New York Times, Late Edition)

IMPORTANT:  Westminster College does not have free access to all content on the New York Times home page. Our access is provided by ProQuest, which has indexed the content for use on its own web site. Going to is not an alternative means to access all New York Times content that is available to Westminster College.

Please contact John Garrison if you have any questions or are having any difficulty accessing the New York Times content.
