“Premium content” of all kinds from the Chronicle

The Middlebury community has access to the Chronicle of Higher Education in print, located in the Harman Periodical Reading Room and online, via a range of full-text databases, like Proquest, among others but also directly through the Chronicle’s website. All Middlebury users can access the “Premium Content” indicated by the gold-key icon:So, why is there a “Log in” link in the upper right corner of the Chronicle of Higher Education site?

You may “Create a Free Account” to:

  • subscribe to the Chronicle’s free e-newsletters,
  • post comments,
  • e-mail Chronicle content,
  • save job searches

Summing up, you do not need to log in to access the Chronicle’s premium content, but you may want to create your own free account to take advantage of other features.

    We received this helpful clarification from a representative of The Chronicle:

    Please note that our content in the various aggregated databases such as EBSCO and Proquest is content just from our weekly print editions. This content is made available to the aggregators 30 days after it is published in print and online by The Chronicle. The Web site, of course, is updated daily and contains quite a bit of news and information that never makes it to print and therefore is not available in the EBSCO and ProQuest products.

    The Chronicle is not by any means the only publication for which online access through aggregated databases are less than the original.
