New York Review of Books experiencing access problems

No Comments »

Last weekend The New York Review of Books (NYRB) launched a new web site and has been experiencing problems with authenticated subscription accounts ever since.

Content was migrated from the old site to the new one to join a number of new features that are now available on the new site. Because of this transition, the NYRB is experiencing difficulty in granting access to institutional subscribers, such as UMass Lowell. They are working on the problem and hope to resolve it soon.

With a worldwide circulation of over 135,000, The New York Review of Books has established itself as arguably the top most literary and intellectual magazine in America. The NYRB began in 1963, when its founding editors, Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein, and their friends, decided to create a new kind of magazine—one in which the most interesting and qualified minds of the time would discuss current books and issues in depth. Just as importantly, it was determined that the Review should be an independent publication; it began life as an independent editorial voice and it remains independent today.

Every two weeks, many of the most renowned contemporary writers and intellectuals publish essays and reviews of books and the arts, including music, theater, dance, and film.
