The Athletic by The New York Times

The library provides access to The Athletic, a subscription-based sports news site from The New York Times that provides in-depth coverage, analysis, and commentary on various sports and teams, with a focus on quality journalism and original reporting.

The Athletic and The New York Times are separate sites. All users will need to activate access and log in separately to these websites. KU users with a current account can use the same New York Times login credentials to activate access their access to The Athletic and for logging in in the future.

To learn how to gain access please look at the options in the two columns to the right. Thank you.

If you need help please fill out the Report Library Database Problem or email Bob Flatley.
