The nytimes.com web site, which many people think of as the Times' public online face, is not available for subscriptions by libraries. Many publishers create different products or channels to distribute their publications to the public and to libraries. The Times is such a publisher; New York Times content is available to libraries only through third-party information companies such as ProQuest, Factiva, and LexisNexis Academic. The Library provides all of those options to bring this important newspaper to the Dartmouth community.
The Library continues to offers a variety of ways to connect to the New York Times online, from Vol. 1, Is. 1 (1857) to today's news. These may be accessed at http://libcat.dartmouth.edu/record=b3063627~S3. Links from Google, other websites and databases should also provide this licensed content as long as you are on the Dartmouth network.
The Library continues to offer the Times in print, as well.
Update (1/9/11): If you wish to subscribe to the New York Times Web, its tablet or smart phone editions, there is an attractive discount for college faculty, students, and staff: http://www.nytimes.com/subscriptions/edu/lp1999.html?campaignId=384XW
