Falvey offers the University community online access to the Chronicle of Higher Education, “the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators.” Widely valued for the timeliness and credibility of its news coverage, the Chronicle has won numerous awards for its coverage of political issues with impact on higher education.
Popular features include the careers section with its job listings, annual salary surveys, and the scholarly productivity index, ranking 375 Ph.D. granting institutions. In addition, the online Chronicle offers exclusive daily news articles, podcasts and access to its digital archive dating back to 1995.
Because the site license includes off-campus access through LDAP (Villanova e-mail ID and password) authentication, readers who already have a personal or departmental subscription may consider canceling it now. Those who still enjoy reading the print version of the Chronicle will find it on the periodical shelves on Falvey’s first floor.
For quick, convenient access to the online Chronicle, bookmark the link found in the Library’s catalog. Better yet, create an RSS feed to bring the Chronicle’s features to your browser automatically. For information on how to set up RSS feeds and download a free feed reader, check the Chronicle’s web site.
