Chronicle of Higher Education

There has been a change in the terms of our subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education. Previously, in conjunction with our print subscription, we had a password that we could give out to faculty and staff who wanted access to articles on the web site. We may no longer distribute such a password. If a faculty member calls the Reference Desk asking why the old password no longer works you can explain the situation to them. You should mention that we anticipate having funding to open up campuswide access some time over the summer. And you can refer them to me if they have any further questions.

What they do allow is a password which can only be used by reference staff at the Reference Desk. This fact is probably not worth mentioning if you are talking to someone who is upset about not being able to get in. But if you find that you need to have access in order to answer a question, then the password is given below. We have an excellent chance of securing the funding for the site license, so this inconvenience should only last for several months.
