Yes, when you read articles on nytimes.com, it does limit the number of items you can view. We have The New York Times in print format here in the library going back 3 months, and then we have it in microfilm format going back to 1958. Using the library's copies is the way to get the most complete full text. You can search for the articles you want using nytimes.com or one of several EBSCO databases (including Academic Search Premier or Newspaper Source), then you can scan or photocopy them here in the library.
To search in an EBSCO database such as Academic Search Premier, select "SO Journal Name" from the drop down menu next to the search box and type "new york times" in the box, like this:
Then enter your search terms in the next search box. If you would like to walk through this process together, just stop by the library and either I or one of the other librarians will be happy to help.
Paper newspapers may seem a little cluncky and old-school if you are used to getting all of your research materials online, but as you have seen NYT locks down a lot of their online content. The good news is that we can still get this material even though it involves an extra step.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have other questions and thanks for using our AskUs system.
