New York Times Historic Content

The online archive of includes both the articles and the multimedia content that has, since 1996, accompanied them. Material from more recent years also includes Times blogs, such as the business blog DealBook. The online archive portion of the site includes most materials produced for the online edition by staff and freelance reporters and photographers. It does not include certain syndicated articles supplied by providers such as the Associated Press and other wire services, or materials provided by “ad servers.” After the New York Times Co. vs. Tasini Supreme Court ruling (2001), the Times retrospectively redacted from its online archive materials by freelance and contract contributors for which it had no clear electronic distribution rights. (Since Tasini, the Times has revised contributor agreements to permit re-use of content in all forms of publication.)

As of October 2014, the online archive also incorporates the text of articles published in the print edition from its beginning in 1851, more than 13 million articles total searchable via The 1851 through 1980 portion of the archive includes 46,595 issues that span 2,456,075 printed pages and contain 11,298,320 articles. Pre-1981 material is largely from digitally scanned microfilm of the print edition, available either in full-text or partial articles (optical character recognition may introduce transcription errors). Partial articles include an excerpt of the article and a link to TimesMachine where subscribers can view the entire article in its original form. Full-text versions are available for all articles published after 1980.
