Apologies if this is an off-topic post on this list, but I’m looking for advice or experiences anyone might have had with a direct New York Times site license as opposed to access through a platform (e.g., ProQuest).  We have some interest from faculty in acquiring a site license directly through NYT so that we would get access to additional NYT video/media content not available through our aggregator/platform access.   We also have some concerns that the search functionality available on NYT is lacking for research purposes and that the inability to integrate access with our discovery layer / link resolver (Primo/Alma uResolver, in our case) would reduce access to content.  Anyone have experiences using NYT directly and have any insight into potential concerns?  Please feel free to reply off-list, and thanks!
