The Butler Community now has access to The Chronicle from almost anywhere!
Anyone who has, or creates, a free Chronicle account using their Butler University email address now has 3 NEW WAYS to access Chronicle content.
- From your iPad — Download The Chronicle’s iPad editions at no cost to the individual. You can download either or both sections of The Chronicle.
- From your smart phone or tablet using the device’s Web browser. The new mobile interface makes The Chronicle easy to read when one is on the go.
- From any computer, from any location in the world — Direct access to Chronicle.com from any remote location without having to go through a proxy server. This should be very appealing to those who read Academe Today or any of our other e-newsletters from locations off campus.
To take advantage of your domain access, all that is required is for an authorized user to have a free Chronicle account using their university email address. A Chronicle account can be created by going to Chronicle.com and clicking on the “create” link at top, right hand side of Web page.
The Butler Libraries have updated their list of databases that have mobile-friendly access. Almost all of the EBSCO databases have mobile versions of their search pages, but many new databases have joined them.
Some of the additions include:
- American Chemical Society
- Web of Science (Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science Citation Indexes)
Use any of our database lists (http://www.butler.edu/library/research/databases/) and click the mobile icon next to the database name. Most of these links go directly to the mobile version of the database, but several take you to the page that has links to download the apps for that database.
The Butler Libraries website is now available in a scaled-down mobile-friendly version!
As Butler University has upgraded its mobile, app-based site, the libraries have joined them. Try us now at http://m.butler.edu/Library or use the Butler site, http://m.butler.edu/ and tap “Library.”
Irwin Library now has a charging station available for charging your mobile devices. It is located at the Information Commons Desk and has the following types of connections:
- iPod/iPhone connectors
- USB sockets
If your device uses any of these connections for charging, you are invited to recharge at the Information Commons Desk while using the library. You don’t even have to bring an adapter!
(NOTE: The library is not responsible for stolen, lost, or misplaced devices.)
Many of the libraries’ subscription databases have “mobile” versions that are scaled down to fit the screen size of most handheld devices. Just visit our Databases page like normal, but click on the “Mobile” icons located next to the database names to search those databases on your handheld device.
