Workaround to Suspended ERIC Full-text ED Documents

As many of you are aware, the website sponsored by the US Department of Education has suspended access to many of its user-contributed, full-text documents - those with accession numbers starting with the letters "ED." This was done to isolate and begin removing sensitive personal information found in some portion of the older documents that had previously been available on microfiche.

Accessing Chronicle of Higher Education

The question of how to best access the Chronicle of Higher Education frequently gets asked on our Library Help instant message question service, or to me directly.  Several options exist with varying degrees of ease and number of steps. I offer you the most common options so you can choose based on your situation and preferences.
