Online Books through the Library

Newspapers

Wall Street Journal 

Current WPI students, faculty, and staff can access The Wall Street Journal online through Gordon Library's subscription service. To activate your account go to https://partner.wsj.com/partner/WorcesterPolytechnicInstitute. You'll be prompted to log in with your WPI username and password. Then, you'll create your WSJ account with a new password, using your WPI email address.

For students, when you register for your WSJ account, you will need to indicate your date of graduation, and your account will stay active until that date. Faculty and staff will need to renew their accounts annually. If you see a "Membership Inactive" message when trying to log in to the Wall Street Journal, use the activation link above to reactivate your account. 

Once you have activated your account you can log in no matter where you are at https://www.wsj.com/

Database Access:

New York Times

The Gordon Library provides free access for CURRENT students, faculty, and staff with a WPI email address to NYTimes.com. This service will provide you with an e-subscription to The New York Times to stay connected with the events of the day. In addition, you will have access to the extensive NYT database dating back to 1851 – a tremendous research tool. 

 

To set up your account, go to:

http://www.accessnyt.com/  (If on campus or otherwise within the WPI IP range or on VPN)

http://ezproxy.wpi.edu/login?url=http://ezmyaccount.nytimes.com/grouppass/redir  (If off campus and outside the WPI IP range)

Once you have activated your account you can log in no matter where you are at https://www.nytimes.com/​

 

 

**WPI NYT faculty & staff subscribers need to renew your "academic pass" once every 4 years, on or before your registration anniversary date. (Students will have access until their graduation date.)

To do this, follow these steps: 

1. Navigate to accessnyt.com (from campus or using the VPN)

2. Search for/select Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Then follow the directions to activate the Academic Pass.


 

 

 


 

Once completed, your digital access will be active and you can navigate directly to nytimes.com from any web-enabled device.

 

Tips and Troubleshooting

  • If you have an existing paid NYT subscription, you must cancel it before it may be linked to the school’s program; you may cancel through Customer Care: customercare@nytimes.com / 800-591-9233 
  • The NYT pass page is needed ONLY to sign up for or renew access; all content is at nytimes.com (or download the mobile app from the App Store or on Google Play).
  • Students will have access until they graduate.
  • Faculty and staff must renew once every four years; add your pass expiration date to your calendar; there will be no subsequent reminder.
  • You may reset your NYT password any time here: nytimes.com/forgot
  • See the NYT help page for additional information:  https://help.nytimes.com/hc/en-us/articles/115015957688-NYTimes-com-passes
  • If you have access or account issues account, contact NYT support directly, by emailing educationassistance@nytimes.com as the library does not have access/authority to reset the patron account login.
