Penn State’s News Readership Program Goes Completely Digital

Penn State’s Student New Readership Program has gone completely digital, the university announced Monday.

The change will eliminate the availability of all printed newspaper publications, including the New York Times, Centre Daily Times, and Wall Street Journal, both at University Park and Commonwealth Campuses.

Penn State said the decision follows the nationwide trend of digital news and the declining popularity of print newspapers. The transition also comes as a result of many students studying remotely this semester due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last spring, Penn State expanded the program to provide free, unlimited digital subscriptions to the publications for students. The subscription also includes access to podcasts, videos, and interactive media. Program staff are currently working with local news sources to provide digital access to all students.

To register for a digital subscription, students, faculty, and staff can visit newspapers.psu.edu and follow the instructions for access using a valid Penn State email address. Memberships will be renewed automatically until students graduate.
