Just wanted to remind everyone of two of our newer databases! I know many of you, particularly faculty and staff, come to the library to read The Chronicle of Higher Education, and with good reason. The Chronicle is a premier source of news, information and advice about the world of academia.The journal is a nine-time finalist for the National Magazine Awards, and one of its columnists was a finalist for a 2005 Pulitzer Prize. In 2007, an Erdos & Morgan survey ranked The Chronicle among the 10 most credible news sources. Recently, the library purchased a site license for
The Chronicle of Higher Education online. This gives you online access to all Chronicle content, plus daily news and advice columns, job listings, active discussion forums, and career-building tools such as online CV management, salary databases and more.
We have also added a site license to The Chronicle of Philanthropy. This is a news source for nonprofit leaders, fund raisers, grant makers, and others involved in the philanthropic world. It offers such service features as lists of grants, fundraising ideas and techniques, statistics, reports on tax and court rulings, summaries of books, and a calendar of events.
Check them both out!
