New Online Access to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal

New York Times and Wall Street Journal logos

The Smith College Libraries are pleased to provide new complimentary online access to both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal for all Smith students, faculty, and staff.

To Access the New York Times

To access the New York Times for the first time:

  • Go through the Databases A-Z list, or use this link.
  • You will be prompted to sign up for a New York Times account, using your Smith e-mail address. This is essentially creating your own personal account under the umbrella of the library subscription.
  • After the initial set up you will be able to go directly to nytimes.com to log-in for full access or use the NYTimes app from anywhere, on any device and gain full access with the login you've created. (Please note that our institutional subscription does not include The Crossword.) 
  • Faculty and staff will need to refresh their account annually.

Spanish and Chinese language editions also available.

If you would like to cancel a personal subscription now that you have access through the Smith Libraries, you can contact customercare@nytimes.com or call 800-591-9233.

To Access the Wall Street Journal

To access the Wall Street Journal for the first time:

  • Go through the Databases A-Z list, or use this link.
  • The link will send you through the Smith authentication log-in, and then you'll be prompted to create your own Wall Street Journal account (which does not need to be the same as your Smith log-in; you can use a personal e-mail address).
  • You will then be able to go directly to wsj.com or use the WSJ app to gain full access with the account you've created. International editions are also available.
  • Faculty and staff will need to refresh their account annually.

If you would like to cancel a personal subscription now that you have access through the Smith Libraries, call 1-800-Journal.
