How do I activate my newspaper subscription?
Foley Library Offers full online subscriptions for all Gonzaga students, faculty, and staff to the following newspapers:
- The New York Times
- The Wall Street Journal
- The Spokesman Review *Off campus access may be limited due to technical issues we are working on
Good to know:
Gonzaga students faculty and staff now have full complimentary access to NYTimes.com and NYT mobile apps, as well as their international editions, thanks to our school-wide subscription made possible by contributions from GSBA, Foley Library, Faculty Senate and the Academic Vice President.
To access NYTimes.com, each user must initially register using their Gonzaga email address:
- Go to the New York Times database (off campus users: authenticate with your Gonzaga username and password).
- Create free NYTimes.com account using your Gonzaga email.
- You have successfully claimed a Pass when you see the Start Your Access screen, which will display the expiration time and date of your pass. Please note, that each “pass” is good for 364 days, and then will need to be renewed.
- Now you can enjoy seamless full access to NYTimes.com, INYT.com and NYT mobile apps just by logging into your NYTimes.com account from any location, on or off campus.
Also included in the “Group Pass” is access to the NYTimes smartphone and tablet apps (iPhone, Android, Windows).
