How do I access New York Times full-text?


Campus-wide access to the New York Times requires a NYT account. Users must re-validate their account each calendar year.

  1. Visit
  2. Search for Iowa State University in the search box.
  3. Login to your existing NYT account or create a new account with your email
    • Select your affiliation to the university (defaults to student)
    • An email will be sent to your ISU email with a link to validate access for one year
  4. Click on the blue "Go to" tab to access the site

*If you are using Okta, simply add the New York Times app to your dashboard for quick access.

Having trouble signing in?

If it won't let you sign in with your university email address, try selecting the "login without password" option. That will prompt a link to be sent to your email which you can then click to access your NYT account. Please note that the email might come as junk mail so you should check there if you can't see it in your inbox.

NOTE: If you registered for a NYTimes account during the prior year you will need to wait until that account lapses before re-validating using the ISU Library account registration link.
