Library Offers Campus Subscription to Chronicle of Higher Education
Through the support of the Friends of the Folsom Library, the Rensselaer Libraries have renewed a site license to the daily online version of The Chronicle of Higher Education, which allows the campus community access to the newspaper at no cost.
“Given The Chronicle is ‘the’ news service for higher education, I think this is a wonderful service,” said Bob Mayo, director of the Rensselaer Libraries. “Providing a site license saves money to those who were paying for a subscription but, perhaps more importantly, provides access to the many who did not have a subscription.”
This is the second year that the Friends of the Folsom Library has underwritten the cost of an institutional subscription to The Chronicle. The Friends is a service organization comprising Rensselaer faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, and interested community members dedicated to enriching the collections, services, and events provided at the Folsom Library.
