Yale to Receive Kissinger Papers and Establish the Johnson Center for the Study of American Diplomacy

Yale Daily Bulletin – “President Richard C. Levin today announced that Dr. Henry A. Kissinger will donate his papers to Yale University. The collection, which consists of approximately one million documents and objects covering Dr. Kissinger’s extraordinary life as a diplomat, scholar, teacher, and private citizen, will enhance Yale’s existing strengths as an archival repository for major 20th century American leaders. Yale already holds the papers of renowned former diplomats and alumni Henry Stimson (Class of 1888), Dean Acheson (Class of 1915), and Cyrus Vance (Class of 1939, LAW ’42), as well as those of President Woodrow Wilson’s most influential adviser, “Colonel” Edward House.”

Library to keep NYT free after paywall

Yale Daily News – “The New York Times will launch a paywall next Monday, but for Yalies, free access to “all the news that’s fit to print” will be just a few extra clicks away. Starting March 28, the Times will limit non-subscribers to 20 free online articles each month. Yale students will still have access to the Times’ online image edition — which features the newspaper in its original color print format dating back to May 2010, when the library started its subscription — through the library’s website. While only three of 20 students interviewed said they knew the library subscribed to the Times’ image edition, and only one had ever used it, half said they will turn to the library for access once the paywall is enacted.”
