There are a few reasons why you might have trouble finding an article from the New York Times website in the library's databases. Articles published online often have alternative titles in the print edition, and may have appeared in print on a different day than they appeared online; additionally, the library's subscription to the New York Times only includes articles that are published in the national edition of the New York Times.

To find out which edition of the New York Times the article appeared in, and if it has an alternative print title, scroll to the bottom of the article, under the author's byline.

This article appeared on May 28th, 2020, in the print edition with an alternative headline. It was only published in the New York edition, so it is not available via the library's subscription.

If an instructor would like to use an article from an alternate edition of the New York Times as a course reading, you can email the Library Copyright Office for guidance. Please also refer to UNBC Fair Dealing and Copyright guidelines; a single newspaper article falls into the category of a "short excerpt" in the Fair Dealing guidelines.
