You must be enrolled for the semester with a current NSU student ID card. In order to access databases and other electronic resources from off campus., you will need to log in using your NSU network ID and password. You will need to use one of the login screens to authenticate yourself. Please see next tab, sample login screen.
Electronic resources are only available to current students, faculty and staff due to license agreements and subscription fees. The Library uses a proxy server to identify authorized off-campus users.
1. When you click an electronic resource on the library's website or library's catalog, the proxy will take you to a login page. (If you are on campus, you will not be asked to log in.)
2. Enter your NSU network ID and password. (The same one you use to access your email and Blackboard)
3. Once you have logged in, you will not be asked again for your ID and password, until your turn off your computer, or close your browser.
Most of the databases and e-journals provided by the Library are on the web but are not free. The Library purchases access to them from companies. The agreement with these companies limit access to current NSU students, faculty and staff.
