A password is no longer needed. There have been some recent changes to the College’s subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education that make access easier when off-campus. You can still access the Chronicle through links on the Library’s website as you would expect. However, there is another way for access that brings some extra benefits.
You can create a free account on the Chronicle website. And of course, each of you has an @piedmont.edu email address. You should create a personal account because when you use your @piedmont.edu email account in the profile, the Chronicle will recognize you as part of the College’s subscription when you login.
So if you are reading a Chronicle newsletter at home and click on a locked, premium article … or you’re on the Chronicle website and you encounter a locked, premium article … you can login to your personal account and you will have access to all of the premium articles.
Another example of premium materials you may encounter are the short Chronicle Focus reports. This is particularly when a personal account brings benefits. If you are on-campus and not logged in, the Focus Reports are locked and a Subscribe to Download button appears by them. If you have a personal account, with your @piedmont.edu email address, you can login and you will then have access to the Focus Report you want.
