This is proving to be a tremendously valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate student in the School of History. It would be extremely helpful if we could continue this subscription on a permanent basis.

I should have added ... that the NYT archive is indispensable for staff research across the disciplines and should also be a core resource for a world-leading research intensive university with historical and enduring ties to the big Apple. Please, can we retain access?

I have used the New York Times archive for research for my dissertation. It has been incredibly useful so far and will aid me massively when I write the dissertation. It would be really useful to have the archives available permanently.

The NYT archive is going to provide of high value for my dissertation. It would be of use to have permanent access for continued reference throughout the year

I work in the School of History and this resource is excellent for teaching and research. It really should be a permanent addition to the library, at least so myself, students and colleagues don't have to rush to find content before the trial period ends!

I'd support the comments made by my History colleagues. This is a key source for American history research and teaching, but also for most branches of historical work, given the NYT's place as a journal of record. I've been using this lately for material on business, architecture and urban history more generally. Graeme Milne (History)

As someone studying American history in the 20th century, the one thing so far missing from the library collections has been the New York Times online from ProQuest. It's an indispensable resource that every serious scholar of American history needs. I therefore very much hope that it will be made available permanently.

A vital resource for students and staff who are engaged in research in nineteenth and twentieth century US history. Please, can we retain access?
