It depends on the articles you're trying to find.  If you're looking for an article that's more than three years old, you can use the New York Times Historical Archive. If you know the exact title, you can put part of it in quotation marks in the search box: "Demonstrations Mark Third Anniversary of Iraq Invasion."  If you're not sure of the title but have an idea of the date, you can use the Publication Date feature to choose an exact date, or a range (March 1, 2006 through March 31, 2006), along with keywords that might be in the article.  If you're just looking for any kind of article, just put in some keywords for your topic.

If you're looking for an article from the last three years, you can use LexisNexis Academic or Factiva and choose the New York Times as your specific source. In LexisNexis, that option is right below the Search the News search box, where it says "By Source Title."

If you just want to browse the NYT from the last couple of weeks, use Factiva. Click on NEWS PAGES on the Factiva homepage - the NYT will be the second newspaper listed. It will show articles from today's paper, and you can choose other issues from the last two weeks.

To find all of these databases, click on ALL DATABASES on the library homepage and then N for New York Times Historical, L for LexisNexis, etc.

If you're in the JRN105 class, there will be a research session next Monday on using the NYT.
