Getting started

Connecting from Off Campus

Almost all of the library's online resources are available to you from off-campus. Just remember to link to resources from library web pages so you'll be recognized as a member of the Northwestern community. For example, if you try to access JSTOR by going directly to from off-campus, you won't be able to get in. If you link to JSTOR from the library's electronic resources, you'l be asked for your NetID and passed on through.

For a few of our resources you'll also need to set up VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Be sure to set your preferences in Google Scholar so you can link to NU resources.
