Yes, UMD affiliates do have online access to the Chronicle of Higher Education through the UMD Libraries. Users can access the journal webpage through the Libraries' website and articles from the Chronicle through a number of our databases. If off-campus, however, users must either log in as current students, faculty, or staff at UMCP, or else visit one of our eight branches and obtain a guest ID and password in order to use one of our Dell public computers. 

You can access the journal by clicking here and then scrolling down to the Chronicle of Higher Education link; or by entering the journal name in the Citation Linker; or, by installing the Reload Button in your browser to check for access while searching independently. The instructions that follow explain how to use WorldCat UMD to find online journals, starting on the Libraries' homepage:

  • Type the journal name in the search box on the homepage 
  • Click Search to get a list of results 
  • Click the title to see the full record; under the Availability section you will find a list of databases that provide online access to the Chronicle, and the years included in each database. Depending on the issue that you need, many of the databases listed such as Education Source, MasterFILE Premiere, and Academic Search Complete, will be equally useful to find articles in past issues of the Chronicle.
  • Click on one of these links to see on the right a long list of receding monthly dates that lead to tables of contents with links to HTML full text copies of the articles found in respective issues of the publication. Also, over on the left, look for a "Search within this publication" option that will allow you to enter article titles, authors' names, or keywords to access full texts.
