“Chronicle of Higher Education” Now Available Online to the Barton Community

As promised, Hackney Library as of January 1, 2018 has been providing the Barton community access to the electronic version of the Chronicle of Higher Education’s premium articles and resources.  Access is available from anywhere, whether on campus or off, and from both your computer and your mobile device(s).

A variety of features are included in this subscription:

  • Unlimited access to all premium content at Chronicle.com
  • Access to daily updates through newsletters like Academe Today and daily or weekly updates to 11 more e-newsletters
  • Special reports and data such as the The Almanac of Higher Education and The Trends Report
  • Archived issues back to 1989
  • Emailed job alerts

There are a couple of ways to access the Chronicle:

  • From on or from off campus, you may go directly to chronicle. com or
  • On the library’s home page, hover over the “Search” link and then click on the “A-Z List” link, and choose “C”; then scroll down in the alphabetical listing to find the Chronicle link and click on it from there.

The Chronicle subscription through Barton allows you to set up an individual customizable account on the Chronicle.com site by using your Barton email address as your username and creating a password specific to the Chronicle site.  (If you use an address other than your Barton email, the site will not be able to authenticate you as a Barton patron and you will not be able to take advantage of the access our subscription provides). 

Creating a Chronicle.com Account

Creating your own Chronicle.com account allows you to access additional premium content that you cannot see otherwise, as well as to set up various alerts and more.

  • To create a Chronicle.com account from your computer:
    • Go to chronicle.com

    • Choose the “Create an account now” option.

    • Continue to follow the directions as they appear on the screen to complete the setup for your account.
  • To create a Chronicle.com account from mobile device(s):

    • If you’re in the standard view: Follow the “If you’re off campus: computer” steps.
