The Chronicle of Higher Education is a comprehensive resource for new information and jobs for college and university faculty and administrators. The database contains a fully searchable archive of articles published since September 1989. It appears weekly during the academic year and less frequently from May through August and during December.   There are 43 issues published every year. The database is an excellent resource to those conducting research on higher education.

Topics that users can access on the database range from leadership to campus safety. Near the top of the database is a list of the latest articles published in The Review. The topic story on the database when this was written was “Is Academic Freedom a Human Right?” Quite a profound and unique topic. Another story was “The Free-Speech Stronghold” which demonstrates the database’s commitment to current issues that affect higher learning on a real-world basis.

The database also has access to the Chronicle’s featured newsletters including: Race on Campus and Latitudes. There is a list of virtual events that can be viewed on demand. Professional development resources are also available where users can read stories from the Chronicle’s journalists and contributors on various topics.

The Chronicle of Higher Education can be accessed from the Databases landing page under “C.” The page can be found on the Library’s homepage under the Find drop down menu or on the “Databases” tab on the Discovery Search page.
