The 165-year old publication is hailed as one of the world's greatest newspapers – and revels under the motto "All the news that's fit to print".

This includes stories from Goldsmiths – with research at the university and the Goldsmiths Prize grabbing headlines in the publication over the last six months.

Goldsmiths is just the second British university to subscribe to the newspaper – a move which gives everyone on Campus a new resource to use in their work, practice and research.

Experts from the newspaper are due to visit campus to help explore how their extensive database can be used for teaching. Reporters are also due to visit to carry out masterclasses with students.

Patrick Loughrey, Warden of Goldsmiths, said: "Goldsmiths is part of a global network and this underlines our world view. We want to give everyone a chance to use and enjoy this brilliant newspaper.

 "Giving free access to the New York Times opens up a huge resource – it will be of real benefit to research and scholarship across campus. I urge everyone to dive in as soon as possible."

Goldsmiths is only the second university in the UK to subscribe to the newspaper – alongside the University of Cambridge's Judge Business School. Around the world university subscribers include Harvard University, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Dusseldorf.

The daily broadsheet is one of the world's most prestigious, influential and widely circulated newspapers and has won a record 117 Pulitzer Prizes.

It covers international and national news, politics, business, tech, science, health, sports as well as features on the arts, style food and travel. Its opinion section is feared the world over – with columnists including Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman.

The homepage features the latest news, but to find older content or more in-depth content, use the search function or click on sections and browse for content. You can also click on Today's Paper to see which content is in today's print version of the newspaper.

Each news story can be saved for reading later, or shared via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and more.

The New York Times is not the only newspaper Goldsmiths students and staff can access.

Through our subscriptions to Proquest Online Newspapers, you can access the archives of the main UK national newspapers and many local and regional newspapers since approximately 1997.

Other sources of news that are available include the British Library's Newsroom at St Pancras and even your local public library will have access to resources such as the Times Digital Archive.
