Does the library subscribe to Chronicle of Higher Education?
Go to the library's homepage, www.american.edu/library on the right under RESEARCH, click on FIND JOURNALS. In the search box, type in the name of the journal (not the title of the article) in the search box and click on search. For example, CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION, is available in multiple databases. (Always look at the available dates ensure that the article you need is included.) If you want to browse the current issues, click on the Chronicle of Higher Education link, rather than one of the databases. If you want to search for a subject, select one of the databases.
From off campus, you will be prompted to log on with your last name and seven digit ID number found on your AU ID card. From the pull down menu, select American.
