Digital Collections

Academic Databases

The NSU Libraries have over 200 academic databases available through our website. They can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection with your NSU user name and password. 

Some of the most commonly used databases are:


There are many eBooks available through the library's website. When you are using the Everything or Books & Media searches, there will be a series of filters on the left-hand side of the results. Under 'Format' select the box for 'eBooks' to limit your search. You can access and read these books anywhere with your NSU login.


Our vast collection of E-Journals (academic journals available digitally) can be searched or browsed through the 'E-Journals by Title' tab on the library homepage (or see the link below). This is a helpful search tool if you have an article citation with the name, volume, and/or issue of a journal.
