Hiram College Students, Faculty, and Staff

  • International Edition: Edited in London, Hong Kong, and New York, the International New York Times provides news from a global perspective.  The Chinese and Spanish editions are also available on the web.

  • Historical coverage: All articles published since 1851 are available, although there are some restrictions on the years 1923 through 1980.

This separate site is designed to help bring the New York Times into the classroom by providing resources designed for education.  It includes:

  • Suggested learning outcomes
  • General Instructional Strategies to promote student achievement
  • Co-Curricular Activities, including events, discussions, and contests

Using NYTimes.com/edu requires a separate user set up.  While you can use the same username/password as your New York Times account (see above), you must use your hiram.edu email address.  You may register here.
