As a member of the IU East community, did you know that you can get free access to The Chronicle of Higher Education online? Or to The Washington Post? The main library at IU Bloomington has purchased premium access to The Chronicle of Higher Education and has set up an agreement to include access to all the regional libraries as well. You can easily access the site by going to http://www.chronicle.com/ from any IU East computer or from home via the library’s A-Z Database List at http://iue.libguides.com/c.php?g=66654&p=432900.
The Washington Post, on the other hand, provides free access to anyone with an .edu, .gov, or .mil email address. If you are accessing the Post from an IU East computer, you should be able to access any Washington Post article directly from their site at https://www.washingtonpost.com/, but if you are working from home, you can register for a free account using your .edu email address at https://subscribe.washingtonpost.com/loginregistration/index.html#/register/group/long.
This summer, the IU East library has also received access to seven new primary source collections from Gale, filling in some of the gaps in our historical newspaper collections. We now have access to:
All seven of these databases can be accessed from our A-Z List, located on the library’s homepage under “Top Library Resources.” So, whether you are interested in current events or looking for primary sources for your research, the IU East library can help you find what you need.
