Re: Chronicle of Higher Ed-- online archive? Susan Davis 17 Aug 2007 18:05 UTC

I did clarify with the Chronicle that there is no perpetual access with the
license. If you cancel, you lose access to everything on the site.  Not
what we wanted to hear.

Therefore we are maintaining our microfilm subscription.
