The New York Times unveils new schoolwide digital subscription service
- The New York Times on Thursday launched NYTimes.com In-School Access.
- The digital subscription service allows full, login-free access to the newspaper's content from any device using an IP address from a school.
- Students and faculty will also have access to The New York Times' archives, but only for content from 1851-1922 and 1981-present.
According to a release, the new service is offered in addition to another education digital subscription that allows full access to NYTimes.com content and smartphone apps from any location, upon login. Thursday marks the new service's worldwide rollout, as it was previously only available to a select number of schools this summer.
That access should prove invaluable for a number of subject areas, from science to social studies and the arts, particularly when it comes to keeping students aware of current events and creating assignments that require them to put those events in context.
