Need Help?  Please email library@reynolds.edu, call us at 804-523-5329, or bring a device (like your phone) to the library.  We can walk you through the process. 
 

Step 1:

Do you have an existing paid New York Times subscription to their website?  You must cancel it before it may be linked to Reynold's college-wide subscription.  You may cancel through Customer Care.  Email customercare@nytimes.com, or call 800-591-9233.  (Note: This subscription includes access to the website and all articles.  It does NOT include a subscription to NYT Cooking or the New York Times Games.)
 

Step 2:

Log out of all accounts (such as your email, Google, Apple, MyReynolds, Canvas, Facebook, etc.).  Do NOT be actively logged into any online account.  During this process, you will create an account with the New York Times' website.  Logging out will ensure you tie your New York Times account to the personal account you want to use.  If you remain logged in to an account, the website will automatically select that account.
