This year, the Library & Learning Commons offered access to the New York Time Online on a trial basis. We’re excited to announce that the trial has been hugely successful with over 36,650 uses from August through mid-March 2018! Thanks especially go out to Heather Richards and Mike Light for requesting that we add a national newspaper to our collection – and to the entire Social Sciences Department for going in “halfsies” with us on the trial. The Library will renew this license and cover the license cost in its entirety in the future!
Classroom faculty and librarians wanted a well-written and researched, real-time, full-image (including photos and cartoons) national newspaper so students could broaden their understanding of important issues, use as a source to combat “fake news,” and where readers were not constantly hitting the payroll – aka the limit on free articles. By alerting faculty to the continuance of New York Times Online now, they can plan new lessons knowing that students’ free access is ensured. Faculty can also sign up for a weekly email from New York Times in Education which recently published Over 1000 Writing Prompts for Students!
The New York Times Online is available for free for all GRCC students, faculty, and staff when you sign up with your GRCC email address. NYTimes.com Group Passes are provided by GRCC’s Library & Learning Commons and the Social Sciences Department on a one-year trial.
NYTimes.com Group Passes provide free access to the extensive news, multimedia and archives of the New York Times without needing to pay for their own subscription!
