The University Library is very pleased to announce that all three U-M campuses now have institutional online access to the complete Chronicle of Higher Education Digital Edition website providing expanded content from the Chronicle.
All current U-M faculty, students and staff (as well as visitors using guest workstations in U-M libraries) who navigate to the Chronicle’s website through the library link at http://www.lib.umich.edu/database/link/558334 will have access to the full content of the website, which is updated throughout the day and includes the latest news in academe.
It also includes articles from back issues (September 1989 – present); the data from the annual Almanac of Higher Education; and other special, single-topic reports in easy-to-search databases such as the Salary Explorer which provides faculty salary information.
For more details on what’s included, see the full description in the Search Tools Databases list. (The library continues to offer online access to the weekly print issues of the Chronicle via ProQuest, which includes the full text of back issues from January 1988 to August 1989 not included in the Chronicle website, but does not include full text from the most recent issues, nor any of the other added content on the Chronicle website.)
In addition, current U-M faculty, students and staff may create personal Chronicle.com accounts that will also give them full access to the Chronicle website from anywhere provided that they enter their personal U-M email address (ending in “@umich.edu”) as the email address for the account. To create a personal Chronicle account, click on the “Create a Free Account” link that appears at the top right of the Chronicle website, or visit http://chronicle.com/myaccount/createfreeaccount.
After creating a personal Chronicle account, you can sign up for the Chronicle’s newsletters which provide daily and/or weekly updates of academic news of particular interest to you and which arrive via email. If you have previously created a personal Chronicle account, and have used your personal U-M email address (ending in “@umich.edu”) to do so, your account should automatically give you unrestricted access to the entire Chronicle site.
Please note, however, that your U-M personal Chronicle account does not include access to recent issues of the Chronicle iPad Edition via the new Chronicle iPad App, which requires a Premium Chronicle account that comes with a print subscription or can be purchased separately.
