    Registration

    Below are the directions for registering for the New York Times and The New York Times in Education which are two separate resources.  You must create two separate registrations although you can use the same username and password for both.  (For New York Times Historical, you will use the username and passwords that you created for the regular New York Times.)  If you have any issues, check out the troubleshooting tips at the bottom or email us at ask@tncc.libanswers.com 

    Access to the New York Times

    Follow these steps:  

    Step 1: Click on this link:  http://nytimesineducation.com/access-nyt/thomas-nelson-community-college-hampton-va/ 

    Step 2: If you're on campus click the first option which says "On Campus Click Here". If you're off campus, click the big blue "Go" button.  

    Step 3: Click Create Account and complete registration fields. (You may want to consider un-checking the occasional updates link if you don't want to get NY Times emails.) 

    Step 4: Once you are registered, you can login to the regular New York Times website at: https://www.nytimes.com/

    Important Note: You must re-register annually, so try to remember the date that you initially registered.  

    Access the New York Times in Education

    New York Times in Education is a supplementary resource for college instructors.  This is curated content, covering 16 disciplines, tailored to college level pedagogy.  It's good stuff. Access requires a separate login.

    In order to register:

    Step 1: Go to http://nytimesineducation.com/register/ and fill out relevant content.  You must use your @tncc or @email.vccs.edu email when registering

    Step 2:  Once registered, faculty and students will go to http://nytimesineducation.com/ to log in.  

    Troubleshooting Registration

    • After creating an account or updating your personal account, you will be advanced to a screen with a button to connect to NYTimes.com. Click the blue button “Go to NYTimes.com” to start your pass.
    • Remember the expiration time and date for when you need to go and grab a pass again by repeating steps 1 – 4 by simply logging in. Or click on the calendar reminder feature.
    • After claiming your NYTimes.com pass, provided by your institution, do not sign out so NYTimes.com remembers your personal credentials on your personal device. If working from a public computer, please do sign out. Your NYT account may be signed in directly at NYTimes.com from any computer using the same email and password used to create your account. There is no need to go through your library’s URL again until your pass needs to be renewed.
    • If you go into “My Account” page under the username, you will see under DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTION that you have “shared access.” Take advantage of NYT’s weekly email alerts in the gray bars in the My Account page.
    • If you select “cancel”, on the “My Account” page your account will be detached from your school’s main group pass account with unlimited access to NYTimes.com, and will keep you on NYTimes.com as a registered user with access to 10 articles from NYTimes.com, which resets monthly.
    • If you have been disconnected by “cancelling” your account, but wish to reconnect your account you will need to start the process again by repeating steps 1 – 4.
    • If you’re having problems connecting your pre-existing account to your institution’s pass make sure that you’ve logged out of NYTimes.com prior to authenticating your pass.
    • To quickly check if you are logged out of NYTimes.com – go to NYTimes.com, and click on your name if it appears on upper right. Note the current username or email and password from NYTimes.com; if you have forgotten your password to NYTimes.com, reset it at www.NYTimes.com/forgot. Then log out of NYTimes.com.
    • If you have forgotten your password go to www.NYTimes.com/forgot.

    Database Access

    All of the links: New York Times, New York Times in Education and New Times Historical are included in the library database list.  Again, it is essential that faculty and students first register in order to gain access.
