The Law Library is pleased to announce a new service for you as part of our subscription to The Chronicle of Higher Education online!
You can now go straight to the Chronicle's website when you're off campus and view premium content (with the gold key). All you have to do is create a free account with the Chronicle, using your @phoenixlaw.edu or @student.phoenixlaw.edu email address.
The Chronicle has really great articles all about higher education. My personal favorites have to do with technology in higher education. With the account you create, you can sign up for email newsletters (from their various blogs) to be delivered to your email inbox daily. I currently subscribe to the daily Wired Campus newsletter. I also enjoy reading the ProfHacker blog.
Alternatively, you can visit our databases page or our homepage database drop-down menu (below the catalog search box) to select the Chronicle of Higher Education. If you're off campus and go to the Chronicle's website through the law library's website, you'll be asked to enter your name and library barcode number, just like for our other databases.
We hope this new service is easier for you to access the Chronicle off campus! Feel free to email me with any questions you may have!
Enjoy your summer...
