Please be aware that copyright and fair use may apply to your use of these electronic resources, especially your use of material from full-text databases. Please refer to our Copyright and Fair Use page for further information.
Access to most databases, electronic journals and ebooks is automatic when you are on-campus and using our computer servers. When you are off-campus, you can access most electronic resources by clicking on the "A-to-Z" link below. When you are prompted for a log-in, enter your 14-digit library bar code and your pin number. For remote access, you must have a current library card with the LRC (current students must update their card in our system each trimester). Contact the library circulation desk if you don't know your pin number. Remember: Please do not share your login information; abuse of our subscription resources will jeopardize the library's access to those resources.
Online access to some journals might not be available due to ongoing subscription changes. Please check with the reference librarian and let him know about these specific problems. This passwords list also is available through your MyNU Student Portal or Faculty Portal using the "Database Logins" under the Campus Resources menu.

NUHS Staff Picks
Being Mortal by Atul Gawande is a must-read for anyone who expects to get old or who has aging parents (so, basically everyone). Dealing with the difficulties and decisions of aging and end-of-life issues is depicted in humane, thoughtful and heart-felt real-life vignettes. Being Mortal is a compassionate book to initiate the discussions that we need to have. This book also is available electronically through eReadIllinois on our eResources page.
