How to get complete access to news sources on your own devices through NWACC Library subscriptions.

Top News Sources

The Chronicle of Higher Education is the leading source of news and commentary about the events, people, and issues shaping higher education.  Because NWACC Library is a subscriber, you can read full issues online and enjoy free downloads of weekly issues directly to your iPad.

By using The Chronicle through the library, you get the complete contents of the latest issue; daily news and advice columns; thousands of current job listings; an archive of previously published content; vibrant discussion forums; and career-building tools such as online CV management, salary databases, and more.

Once you create an account, you can log in to access The Chronicle from any device by going to chronicle.com

After creating a personal Chronicle.com account, you can sign up for the Chronicle’s newsletters which provide daily and/or weekly updates of academic news of particular interest to you and which arrive via email. 

HOW TO SET UP AN ACCOUNT

  1. Access The Chronicle via the Library's A-Z Database page or by using the link above.
  2. In the upper right-hand corner, click on Log In
  3. On the Log In page, click on Create a Free Account.
  4. Submit the appropriate information being requested. You must use your NWACC email address.  You will also be required to create a password.  This is not your My NWACC Connection password, so it can be whatever you want it to be.
  5. Once you have created your free account, you can log in to access The Chronicle of Higher Education from any device.

 

TO ACCESS VIA IPAD (sorry, no Android app available):

  1. Download The Chronicle of Higher Education app from the App Store onto your iPad.
  2. You will be required to login using your free account credentials (NWACC email and password you created in steps above).
  3. The Chronicle will appear in your Newsstand on the iPad.  You will be able to download editions to your iPad, and when finished, archive them so they are removed from your iPad. (If you archive an edition, you can also easily re-download at a later date, if you wish.  Archiving read editions will free up space).

 

The library's subscription provides NWACC faculty, students, and staff access an unlimited number of New York Times articles online as well as its videos, blogs and other interactive content. 

Users will find a variety of topics covered with unsurpassed quality and depth through breaking news articles, blogs, videos and interactive features. Convenient section lists and search tools make navigation simple.

In addition, users can discover and share content on social networks, save articles, subscribe to email newsletters of areas of interest and receive news alerts, either on predefined topics or through a keyword search the user designates.
