International Students: Off Campus Access & Useful Information

This guide is for all international students to assist with your information needs.

Off-Campus Access



The preferred way to log-in from off-campus is through MyNSU portal. Off-campus (or remote) access to the University Library’s electronic resources is provided to allow Library users  to securely connect to databases, electronic journals,  ebooks and streaming media services without installing complicated third-party software. When you attempt to access library content from off campus, you have to authenticate yourself. When prompted , enter your NSU network username and password.  It’s that easy.

Having trouble with remote access to e-books?

If you encounter a broken link or cannot get into a resource, you can do a few things first to make sure that there really is a problem.

  1. Reload the page
  2. Make sure you have configured your browser to accept cookies
  3. Wait a few minutes and try again. For some resources we have a limited number of simultaneous users. When the maximum number of users are logged in, you could be denied access.
  4. Change to a different browser and/or computer
  5. You may be prompted for a username and password when none is required. Please wait a few minutes and try again.
