Everyone with an email address is now eligible to sign up for a free subscription to the New York Times digital edition (website and/or mobile app)! Just follow these simple directions: 
  1. Navigate to
  2. Search for and select Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. You will be redirected to the NYT registration page. 
  3. Click "Create Account" and complete the form. You must use your email address​.
  4. Verify your account.

You will receive a confirmation email (check your spam folder if you don't see it within a couple of minutes). You must click the link in this email to complete the registration.


MCLA's digital subscription includes most content, with a few exceptions. 
  • Most games are not included.
  • E-reader (Kindle, Nook, etc.) editions are not included.
  • Access to some of the archive (1923-1980) may be limited. (The library does have most of those years on microfilm, which, if you haven't used it before, is a real treat.)
  • Your MCLA New York Times account no longer works with the NYT Food app -- this is now a separate, paid subscription. 
The NYT in Education website (faculty focused site that includes 16 discipline-specific areas of study, discussion prompts, learning outcomes, Instructional Strategies, and Co-Curricular Activities)  is a separate website and requires its own username/password.  You must register for access (and use your email address) here:

We hope that you find this subscription useful! If you experience any issues while activating or using your subscription, please contact the library.
