Do you provide access to the Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other news sources?


The Occidental College Library is happy to announce that we offer campus-wide access to the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, The Atlantic, The Economist, and The Washington Post. Students, faculty, and staff can enjoy these newspapers anywhere and anytime from their device of choice. 

Los Angeles Times: Click here for instructions on how to create your free account.

New York Times: Send an email to requesting access. Once your account has been activated, you will receive a welcome email from the newspaper. Please allow us 1 - 3 business days to process your request.

The Economist: Please read these login instructions to get your free Oxy access.

The Atlantic:  Please follow these instructions to gain access for free.

Washington Post: Full free access on campus does not require you to sign in. Just go to the Washington Post webpage and ignore all the requests to subscribe. However, if you would like to access the newspaper off-campus, you will need an account. Instructions on how to set up an account can be found here

We also have a large number of subscriptions to news sources available to staff, students and faculty. A good place to start is the library databases.  When you get there, scroll down to Newspaper Source.  Then enter the title of the newspaper you want in the search box.  There are local, national, and international newspapers there.

Please contact us at if you have any questions.
