About personal Chronicle.com accounts (optional):
Current U-M faculty, students and staff may create personal Chronicle.com accounts that will also give them full access to the Chronicle website from anywhere provided that they enter their personal U-M email address (ending in “@umich.edu”) as the email address for the account. To create a personal Chronicle.com account, click on the “Create a Free Account” link that appears at the top right of the Chronicle website, or visit http://chronicle.com/myaccount/createfreeaccount.
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. If you have previously created a personal Chronicle.com account, and have used your personal U-M email address (ending in “@umich.edu”) to do so, your account should automatically give you unrestricted access to the entire Chronicle site.
