Are you getting the most out of UD’s New York Times subscription?

I am enjoying using the NYTimes Now app on my iPhone. The morning and evening briefings help me keep up with the news. Recently I have challenged myself to start scrolling through the NYTimes app, instead of Facebook.

Did you miss the announcement about our New York Times subscription? Here’s instructions for setting it up. While on campus and connected to the University of Dayton network, visit nytimes.com/grouppass. Follow the instructions to activate your Group Pass. A Group Pass cannot be activated unless you are on campus. Once activated, your pass will provide access to NYTimes.com from any location.

You can create “News Alerts” around chosen keywords/topics at nytimes.com/myalerts. You will be notified whenever articles matching your criteria are posted to the site. Get additional digital content by subscribing to specific NYTimes RSS feeds  to receive the latest headlines, summaries, blog entries and links back to full articles.

Times Topics is a comprehensive reference guide on an array of topics. Each topic page aggregates news, archival information and multimedia files published around a topic, both by The Times and other respected sources.

Additionally, the New York Times has launched a helpful site for college faculty at nytimes.com/edu. It houses instructional strategies for using The Times in a wide variety of courses.  It also includes links to The New York Times in Leadership and The New York Times in the First Year websites. 

NYTimes.com provides breaking news, blogs, videos, opinion and interactive features. With this subscription, you will be able to share content on social networks, save articles of interest, subscribe to email newsletters and set up personalized alerts.

The Student Government Association, University Libraries and the Office of the Provost are sharing the cost of The New York Times Group Pass subscription. Activate your pass today!
