This Day in History

Today marks the anniversary of the launch of the New York Times daily newspaper in 1851. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, this newspaper is one of the most prestigious in the nation, although it has never held the record for highest circulation. Reporting on news, politics, and culture, the New York Times' investigative reporting has earned worldwide recognition.

The NCC Libraries subscribe to the print version, and also offer electronic access to past and current issues through the ProQuest and Opposing Viewpoints databases. Students, faculty and staff also have electronic access to the NYT Book Review and NTY Magazine--including the Sunday crossword puzzle!
