What's New!

Mar. 24: Library Inked is a fun new project to showcase members of the NU community who are proud library users with tattoos! Our first story focuses on a student and faculty member in the Organizational Leadership program.

Mar. 21: Research tip! Try not to search in phrases or sentences like you would on Google. Instead, focus on just the most important keywords for your topic.

Mar. 16: Great news everyone! You can now login to access online Library resources using Single Sign-On (SSO). On the Library's authentication screen, simply click the SSO button to get logged in.

Mar. 4: Check out this retrospective video that looks back on just some of the things that the Library did in 2016. We're aiming to do even more in 2017, and we've got some great stuff planned!
