Hello Public Health Faculty!

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.

Textbook Course Reserves

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.

Access NEIU Libraries' Online Resources from Anywhere

Always, always, always start your search at the NEIU Libraries home page.

This will ensure that you are recognized as an NEIU faculty member and can access our thousands of online subscriptions. From there, search the library catalog or begin a search in a database.

How do you do it?

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 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: (will only work if on campus)

use the link: (will work whether on or off campus)

Use our Link Generator to create your own links to NEIU Libraries' resources easily by copying and pasting. If you run into trouble, just contact for assistance.
