Get free online access to The New York Times & The Wall Street Journal

UCPL cardholders now have free access to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal online editions using your library card! Access to these two national newspapers is available when you log into the online catalog.

Use your library card number and PIN to log in to the catalog (make sure it’s the UCPL version, with the lion logo at the top), and you’ll find links to the two newspapers in the “My Account” section, on the left-hand side. Both newspapers require a free account to log in, but once you’re in, you have 24 hours of access to the New York Times, and 72 hours of access to the Wall Street Journal.
