Pass Expiration:  Your Pass expiration time stamp will be shown to you upon registration, and is based on the graduation date you entered when creating your account (or 4 years for a faculty/staff member).   

Content Included in our Pass:

Content NOT Included: * Passes do not include e-reader editions, Times Insider content, or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword. 

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

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, but you can still use your Pass.

I still need help!  Contact a GRCC librarian at 616-234-3868 or Ask-a-Librarian or email Overview and Key Features
