The New York Times Select service ended on September 19, 2007, access to articles (including obituaries, wedding announcements, etc.) will now be free from 1987 forward, as well as everything prior to 1923 (1851-1922) which is in the public domain. Access to the rest of the NY Times archives will still have to be purchased. Articles are normally available as PDF files.
