Library instruction sessions support your course curriculum and prepare students for research-based assignments, in coordination with the Library's Information Literacy Plan. Face-to-face or online library instruction can range from individual research consultations with students to an in-class lecture and workshop.
Librarians are available for:
Please complete the NEIU Libraries Instruction Request Intake Form to arrange a session for your class.
Please note: A two-week advance notice is greatly appreciated (and necessary) to best accommodate instruction requests, especially if you would like a recording. Please take that into consideration when planning library instruction.
You and your students are also welcome to visit the first floor Reference Desk or call (773) 442-4410.
If you would like the NEIU Libraries to purchase a copy of your textbook to put on reserve, please complete this form before the start of the semester. Library ordering take a little more time than what you're used to with Amazon.
The NEIU Libraries use a tool called OpenAthens to ensure NEIU students, faculty, and staff can access our online subscriptions anytime from anywhere. All that's required is an NEIU NetID and password.
These links begin with the string https://go.openathens.net/redirector/neiu.edu?url= to identify anyone using them as affiliated with NEIU. Users then login with their NEIU NetID and password--the same information used for NEIUport, D2L, and Nmail.
For example, if you wanted to provide a link to the Academic Video Online database, instead of:
https://video.alexanderstreet.com/channe/academic-video-online (will only work if on campus)
use the link:
https://go.openathens.net/redirector/neiu.edu?url=https%3A%2F%2Fvideo.alexanderstreet.com%2Fchanne%2Facademic-video-online (will work whether on or off campus)
