Remote Access to Library Resources - Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need to change anything with my browser to access library resources from off campus?
    No. If you have a current active NT-NSU account userid and you go to and click on any subscription database link, you will be prompted for your NT-NSU userid and password. When you enter your userid and password, click SUBMIT and you will be authenticated by EZproxy and access to the database will be granted. It's as simple as that!

  2. Who is eligible to access electronic journals and databases?
    Only faculty, staff, and students of NSU are authorized to access the subscription databases. The library catalog is free to everyone.

  3. How do I get a NSUnet account userid?
