New library resources include Chronicle access, additional JSTOR collections

The U-M Library recently announced that all three U-M campuses have online access to the complete Chronicle of Higher Education Digital Edition website.

All current U-M faculty, students and staff (as well as visitors using workstations in U-M libraries) who navigate to the Chronicle's website through the library link will have access to the full content of the website, which is updated throughout the day and includes the latest news in academe.

To access the Chronicle through the library's website, enter "Chronicle of Higher Education" in the search field at the top of the home page, and then click on the link that appears under Databases in the resulting list.

The website also includes articles from back issues (September 1989-present); the data from the annual Almanac of Higher Education; and other special, single-topic reports in databases, including the Salary Explorer, which provides faculty salary information.

Current U-M faculty, students and staff can create personal Chronicle.com accounts using their U-M email address, which will enable them to access the full Chronicle website from anywhere. To create a personal Chronicle account, click the "Create a Free Account" link that appears at the top right of the Chronicle website, or click here.

U-M personal Chronicle accounts do not enable access to the latest issues via the Chronicle iPad app.

Note that the Library continues to offer online access to the weekly print issues of the Chronicle via ProQuest, including the full text of issues from January 1988 to August 1989, which are not included in the Chronicle website.

Questions about U-M access to the Chronicle can be directed to the library's General Reference & Popular Press Electronic Resources Team at grpp@umich.edu.

The library also recently acquired four additional JSTOR journal archive collections for the Ann Arbor campus. JSTOR provides full-text access to the archives of core scholarly journals in the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. The new collections comprise more than 500 scholarly journals in the humanities and social sciences, among them African Music, Foreign Affairs, Hudson Review, and The Middle East Journal.

The addition of these four collections increases the number of JSTOR Arts & Sciences collections available to U-M Ann Arbor users to nine (Arts & Sciences I through IX).

Questions about JSTOR holdings can be directed to the library's Core Electronic Resources Team at lib.coreteam@umich.edu.
