New York Times renewals and signups for HLS community

New York Times renewals and signups for HLS community

the-new-york-times2Members of the Harvard Law School community, it is time to renew your Group Pass access for our NYTimes.com subscription!

As you may know, the Harvard Law School Library has a Group Pass for the NYTimes.com.  All HLS faculty, students, and staff may use this Group Pass to create an individual user account similar to the fee-based digital subscription for the NYTimes.com plus SmartPhone App. Every August, all users must re-register to continue access regardless of when they initially registeredRenewal only takes a moment. New users and incoming students (once their Harvard credentials are set up) are welcome to sign up anytime.  

Here’s how to do it:

If you are renewing your Group Pass access:

  • Go to our Group Pass link.
  • Enter your HLS Me credentials.
  • Choose the “Log in to Continue” button.
  • Enter your current username and password.
  • You’re all set!

 If you have never registered with NYTimes.com:

  • Go to our Group Pass link. 
  • Enter your HLS Me credentials.
  • Follow the instructions to create an account and register for your new pass.

If you have never registered for a Group Pass, but have registered an account with NYTimes.com: 

  • Go to our Group Pass link.
  • Enter your HLS Me credentials.
  • If you are already a non-paying subscriber (i.e. you are registered to received free 10 monthly articles), be sure to choose the “Log in to Continue” button. The group pass will be added to your existing account.
  • If you already have an existing paid subscription for digital access to the NYTimes.com you must first cancel your subscription before joining the HLS group pass. You may cancel your existing digital subscription by calling Customer Care at (800) 591-9233.
  • Paid subscribers will not be reimbursed for cancellation. You may want to time your registration accordingly.

Other points to note: 

  • Our group pass covers computers, laptops and SmartPhone devices only.  It will not work on your tablet apps, but it will work using your tablet’s browser.
  • Our site license is for the Law School only and it is not available to alumni.  

We hope you enjoy this resource. For assistance or questions, please contact the Library.
