Project Share Continues to Provide Access to the New York Times Content Repository

Project Share gives educators and students access to a variety of centralized online resources such as the New York Times Content Repository, which provides content dating back to 1851. These resources allow educators to leverage existing content to supplement lesson plans and assignments for enriched instruction.

Although the New York Times has recently decided to discontinue the course offerings in the New York Times Knowledge Network, this decision will not affect the New York Times Content Repository. Project Share, through the Epsilen platform, will continue to provide access to the New York Times Content Repository and the educational resources it offers.

Evan Nisonson, the CEO of Epsilen, issued this statement to clarify the announcement regarding the New York Times Knowledge Network:

Recently, you may have read an article concerning the decision on the part of the New York Times to suspend their online course offerings through the New York Times Knowledge Network.  If your institution is participating in the New York Times Knowledge Network, you should have received a communication directly from them and have the corresponding contact information to make any inquiries directly.

Regarding the New York Times Content Repository, this is a completely separate entity and will not be affected by the New York Times Knowledge Network in any way.  Epsilen continues to work with the New York Times under our current licensing model and will continue to provide access to the New York Times Content Repository for all of our clients.

If you have any questions, or require additional information about the New York Times Content Repository in Project Share, please contact Rebecca Freedholm at Rebecca.Freedholm@tea.state.tx.us.
