Stay Informed with Library Subscriptions

By Maureen Schlangen

University Libraries provide free access to highly reliable information sources that can help people stay informed. Faculty, staff and students who haven’t already taken advantage of these can do so using the “Databases by Title or Subject” button on the Libraries’ website or by using the following links:

  • New York Times online subscription: Use your UD email address to activate your one-year subscription. Once you authenticate, you can read the news and sign up for newsletters and alerts according to your interests. This subscription is co-funded by the Student Government Association, Office of the Provost and University Libraries. 
  • Dayton Daily News: Access via the databases Nexis Uni or Regional Business News and Newspaper Source. Please note, the individual digital subscription that required a UD email address, formerly offered by Athletics, is no longer available. 
  • Dayton Business Journal: Up to 10 users at a time can read this online. Off-campus readers will need to authenticate with their UD username and password.
  • The Chronicle of Higher Education: Premium access to the nation’s largest newsroom dedicated to covering colleges and universities.
  • The New Yorker: Archives available from the previous week’s issue back to 1925.
  • Flipster: Provides access to the full issues of 30 magazine titles including The Atlantic, National Geographic, Ebony, Mother Jones, Inc., Wired, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and more. A Flipster app also is available for mobile devices.

And, a little pleasure reading
