Online access to the Chronicle of Higher Education, a weekday newspaper and higher education-focused website, has become available for students at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
The Chronicle is available to any member of the IUP community around the clock.
The program can also be utilized off-campus from any PC if an account has previously been created through a student, faculty or staff member with an IUP email address, according to IUP’s website.
After creating and activating an account, access to extra features such as blogs and regular email reports are available. The news source has information about an array of topics from enrollment statistics to jobs in the education field.
The site also boasts an extensive set of archives dating back to 1985.
“I think it’s going to be something that everyone here will enjoy,” Joann Janosko, IUP’s collection development electronic resources librarian, said.
The Chronicle has come to the IUP library system at a reduced price, available through the Keystone Library Network, which is available for all universities associated with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
IUP’s access is available through funding through the Stapleton Library.
According to Janosko, it is one of the programs on campus putting “the students’ tuition money at work.”
Supporters of the source agree that the Chronicle includes and enhances all levels of higher education, Janosko said.
“Based on the response that our dean got when he made the announcement across campus,” Janosko said, “I suspect this is going to be a well-used resource.”
The Chronicle of Higher Education has also recently released an iPad application.
