by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 21, 2006

Press release, September 20, 2006: “The New York Times announced today that all articles dating back to Sept. 18, 1851, when the paper started publishing, are now available online at NYTimes.com. With original reporting on Abraham Lincoln, the sinking of the Titanic and the landing at Normandy, The Times is now letting its readers travel through time with the click of a mouse. Searches for articles published before 1981 will produce PDF files showing pages or articles exactly as they appeared in the newspaper. Articles published in 1981 and thereafter will continue to appear online in the familiar scroll-down screen format. The Archive is accessible through TimesSelect, an online feature that is available for free to all regular subscribers of the paper, or for $49.95 for an annual subscription. Non-subscribers will be able to purchase individual articles for a fee per download.”
