(Baldwin Library, Feb. 8, 2017)
BIRMINGHAM, MI- Visitors to the Baldwin Library can now enjoy unlimited access to the New York Times online. Stay up-to-date on breaking news, reviews, multimedia, and opinion on Washington, business, sports, movies, travel, books, jobs, education, and more.
In recent years, the New York Times began limiting users to ten free articles per month and charging $120 for an annual digital subscription. With Baldwin’s new service, visitors who connect to the Library’s Wi-Fi network and log in to www.nytimes.com with a free account can read an unlimited amount of articles.
For Baldwin cardholders who are unable to visit the Library in person, the service is also available remotely. To get started, go to www.baldwinlib.org/nytimes, sign in with a Library card number and PIN, and login or create a new New York Times account.
Josh Rouan, Electronic Resources Librarian, was instrumental in adding this new service for Baldwin patrons. “Since the election there has been an increased demand for high quality journalism, so we are thrilled that we can now offer our patrons full access to www.nytimes.com. With unlimited on-site access and easy access from outside the library, our patrons can now read the nation’s newspaper of record anywhere, any time.”
Baldwin also offers online access to the Christian Science Monitor, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. To read these papers on your computer or mobile device, click on the Research button on the Library’s homepage and select the newspaper from the alphabetical list of resources.
