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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
