Chronicle of Higher Education


Welcome to the Library. In this quick tutorial we’ll review the Chronicle
of Higher Education database. The Chronicle of Higher Education database
includes the complete contents of the latest issue, daily news and advice columns, thousands
of current job listings, an archive of previously published content, vibrant discussion forums,
and career building tools such as online CV management, salary databases, and more. Note that this particular subscription version
of The Chronicle contains exclusive content unavailable online or through other Library
databases such as ProQuest or Education Research Complete, or through a Roadrunner Search. To access the
Chronicle of Higher Education, go to the A-Z databases link on the Library’s homepage. Select the letter “C” and then click the link
for The Chronicle of Higher Education. This is the Chronicle of Higher Education
homepage. Here we may conduct a simple search for content
in the upper right. Use this Sections menu in the upper left to
browse all of the site content. For example, we could look at the latest administration
news, read the current or archived issues of The Chronicle, view special reports, or
see all of the Chronicle videos. Let’s take a look at the Data section. Here you may view interactive tables on faculty
members, administrators, students, and finances, along with data on the demographics, enrollment,
graduation rates, faculty pay, and tuition costs for each state and the United States
and more. For example, we’ll select “Backgrounds and
Beliefs of College Freshmen.” Next we’ll select questions regarding spirituality. Note the original data source is included
under the graph. You may share Chronicle content via social
media or email, as well as print it. Let’s navigate to the Jobs section. Here you may join the free academic community
ChronicleVitae. ChronicleVitae offers you access to career
management tools, a free dossier service, the best jobs, peer community, and candid
advice you need to succeed in higher education. ChronicleVitae.com and Chronicle.com use the
same centralized account, so your login will work across both websites. If you are a new user click on Sign Up. Enter your email address and select a password
to create an account. Once you have created an account, the ChronicleVitae
homepage will allow you to add disciplines, search for jobs, build your profile, and view
recent posts. Click “View All” next to “Find Your Next Job”
to conduct a search. Simply enter a keyword and click the search
button. Here we’ll conduct a search for librarian. After any job search, click the “Get Email
Alerts” button on the results screen to setup your notification preferences. Choose your email alert frequency to receive
daily, weekly, or monthly emails with new job listings. For additional information about ChronicleVitae,
click FAQs at the bottom of the screen. You may also create a personal Chronicle.com
account. Free account benefits include newsletter management,
commenting, and a personal profile. Click Login in the upper right. Remember, if you have already created a ChronicleVitae
Chronicle.com account, you may enter those credentials. Otherwise click “Create an Account.” Enter your name, email address, and job position. Note that you may select Student under Other
Positions. You may also sign up to receive free newsletters. Check the box next to the ones you would like
to subscribe to. To manage your newsletter subscriptions
at any time, login to your account, click on your name in the upper right, and select
Newsletters. Another benefit of creating a personal Chronicle
account is that once you have done so, you may access it directly online without having
to go through the NCU Library. Simply conduct a Google search for The Chronicle
of Higher Education or go to www.chronicle.com. A final feature of the Chronicle of Higher
Education that you may find helpful are the Events, which are accessible from the website
footer. The Events page allows you to register for
forthcoming events or view archived webinars. We hope this tutorial has been helpful! If you need any assistance using the Chronicle
of Higher Education, please don’t hesitate to contact the Library.
