The Chronicle of Higher Education is an online publication that carries articles about college enrollment, teaching tactics in large classrooms, salaries of tenured employees and university presidents, and other news related to higher ed. Many professors and education professionals use this newspaper to keep up with other colleges around the country. While you can see some of The Chronicle’s articles online for free, others require a subscription. That’s where the library comes in.
To access The Chronicle of Higher Education, or any other online magazine that we subscribe to:
- Go to the library website.
- Type in “The Chronicle of Higher Education” in the search bar.
- Click one of the links to view it online. Different databases, like Academic Search Complete, will provide access to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
- If you are off campus, you will be prompted to enter in your Union credentials. If there is trouble in accessing the link after that, then try a different link or email Stephen Mount at email@example.com for help.
Not everyone who needs to use library resources is on the main campus. For Union students who commute or attend other campuses, it is important for them to use library resources remotely. In order to use library resources off campus, you will be prompted to log in with your Union credentials (guests cannot view library resources when off campus). See the paragraph below for help!
How to log in to library resources from off campus:
The databases, e-journals, and other electronic resources to which the Union University Library subscribes are available for off-campus use by students, faculty, and staff of Union University. In order to be recognized as an authorized user of these resources, you must either:
- be using a Union University computer, OR
- login to the EZProxy system.
If you are not using a Union University computer, EZProxy will automatically detect that and will give you a page from which to log in the first time you try to access a restricted resource. You will log in using your Union University network full email address (firstname.lastname for students, first initial last name for staff and faculty) and password (the same one used to log in to Union University computers). Once logged in, you will remain logged in until you close your browser. If your ID and password do not allow you to log in, contact computing services at 731-661-4357 (Jackson) or 901-759-0029 x126 (Germantown).
*If you are still having trouble using library databases off campus, please contact Stephen Mount at firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-661-5419.
