Did you know the library provides free access to the digital versions of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal? Creating accounts for these electronic publications is quick and easy. Once you have registered, you will have access to the daily news, archived content, and special features available only to subscribers.

If you previously set up accounts and discover you no longer have access to these electronic newspapers, it is possible your registration has expired and needs to be renewed. Follow the steps below to either register or re-register for access.

New York Times 

In addition to news content, the New York Times pass allows you to “gift” up to ten articles a month to others. Additionally, you can sign up to receive digital newsletters. There are close to thirty newsletters to choose from with topics including climate change, pop culture, politics, and ethics.

To access content, you must first register for a NYTimes Pass. While logged in, you can access unlimited content from any network or location for the duration of your pass.

  • You must provide your Stonehill email address to confirm you are affiliated with the college.
  • You will be asked to indicate whether you are a student or faculty member.
