Create an Account

At the conclusion of the calendar year, the Washington Post will suspended unlimited complimentary access to washingtonpost.com for users with a .edu email address.

Starting January 1st, 2018 academic users will be limited to the same restrictions as non-subscribers. The WP is however offering an academic subscription rate to .edu subscribers (see washingtonpost.com for details). The library inquired about an institutional subscription to this resource but was told by the WP that it only offers individual subscriptions at this time. The library will continue to monitor future subscription options to this resource.
