Learning Resource Center


In addition to the databases below, the Learning Resource Center also provides access to several electronic journal subscriptions. For a complete list of electronic journal holdings and access information, or for other questions related to database use, contact the Reference Librarian at 630-889-6617 or reference@nuhs.edu.

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.
