What's special about the New York Times?
If you search through the NYTimes.com, you will probably notice that you only get to read a few articles before you're blocked unless you pay for a pricy subscription, but if you're affiliated with the University of Iowa, you won't have to worry about that any longer! As a University of Iowa student, faculty or staff member, you have unlimited access to all of the news articles on NYTimes.com. This is a savings of $17 a month, or $204 a year! Using this access is a great resource for doing research and for personal news consumption.
Besides being one of the most prominent newspapers in the world, accessing the New York Times through the University of Iowa gives you another unique advantage. Instead of using a database interface to browse through articles, you can just go to the website once you have access and go through articles as if you were a paying customer.
