Library Instruction: If you would like to schedule a virtual or in-person, synchronous or asynchronous library instruction session for your science class, contact the NEIU Libraries using this intake form. Please allow two weeks' notice so that we may prepare an assignment-specific session.
Research Consultations: Please refer students to request a research consultation to meet about locating research materials, shaping topics into research questions, and general research process questions and anxieties.
Information Resource Selection: Are we missing a crucial reference book, database subscription, or access to an academic journal? Let us know about any resources you would like the NEIU Libraries to acquire. Subscription management and acquisitions are year-round tasks, and we are happy to try to select according to faculty needs.
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)
