University mulls purchasing New York Times digital subscription

This post was written by Hatchet staff writer Rachel Getzenberg.

Gelman Library is considering purchasing a digital subscription of The New York Times for student use after the Times began charging non-subscribers for unlimited access to online content late last month.

University spokeswoman Courtney Bowe said GW is waiting to make a final decision until the Times announces plans for student and university discounts.

GW is one of about 350 schools to subscribe to The New York Times’ Student Readership Program —a program that provides at least 100 papers free of charge to students daily.

Eileen Murphy, a spokeswoman for The New York Times, said participating schools will be contacted about online content shortly.

“There will be student discounts, particularly for colleges that are part of our readership program,” Murphy said.
