Content NOT Included: *NYTimes.com Passes do not include e-reader editions, Times Insider content or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword (although The Mini crossword is available.) NYT mobile apps are not supported on all devices. Access to archived articles from 1923 to 1980 may be limited. Other restrictions may apply.

Can I access The Times from my mobile device?  All NYTimes.com Passes provide full access to NYT apps; visit nytimes.com/mobile to download. Pass holders can also access NYTimes.com and INYT.com on any device (computer, smartphone, or tablet) with a browser. Mobile apps are supported by most devices.

New York Times platforms

Why am I asked to log in on some occasions and not others?  This may be because your browser may clear its web cache/history if it is set to do so. In such cases you will need to log back into NYTimes.com, but you can still use your NYTimes.com Pass.

I still need help!  Contact a GRCC librarian at 616-234-3868 or library@grcc.edu, or email edu@nytimes.com.
