New York Times

    2. Type in “Lake Forest College.” You will be redirected to a registration page
    3. Select “Create Account” and register using your Lake Forest College email address
    4. Login to your College email and verify your account. Check your “junk” or “clutter” folders if you do not see an email from the New York Times.
    5. Once you establish your login credentials, you will be able to access NYTimes.com on or off campus by going directly to NYTimes.com and logging in. Your access will remain in place for another 364 days before you are asked to re-register.
    6. If you are a current paid subscriber and use your Lake Forest College email address for your subscription, log in to your paid subscription and then select “settings” to change the email address to a different .edu email address. For example, you might change it to @mx.lakeforest.edu, and reserve @lakeforest.edu for the College subscription. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

If you previously set up an account for “academic pass” access to the New York times, go to http://nytimesineducation.com/access-nyt/, select “Lake Forest College,” and then select “Already have an Account?

Regarding Wiley journal articles:
In most cases, the Library pays $14 for each Wiley article downloaded (using an electronic token system).  We budget for this and are thrilled to be able to offer access to Wiley’s >2,000 journal titles.  Unfortunately, every week Wiley tokens get used unnecessarily because the downloaded articles are also available in our library databases at no extra cost.  

How you can help us conserve our Wiley tokens:

1) Set up Google Scholar to recognize you as having access to Lake Forest College journal subscriptions (see above in Google Scholar).
2) Search for the article by title (if necessary, put the title in quotes and/or add the author’s last name).
3) Always choose these links that appear to the right of the article you are seeking:

  • “Check Lake Forest College” (when it appears)
  • Any link on the right-hand side of Google Scholar

How do you know you’re about to use a Wiley token?
If you land on the http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/ site and see this message: “Select the confirm option to access the Article. All users at Lake Forest College will have access to this Article for 24 hours,” and click “confirm,” you’ve used a token.

When you use a token to view a Wiley article:
Please save the article to your computer or flash drive (or print it, upload it to Moodle, etc.); after 24 hours any new download of the article will result in another token being spent.
