Congratulations on your graduation from NSU and welcome back! Please use this guide to identify and access available online library resources after you graduate. Scroll down to learn more about your database access based on your alumni type (distance vs. local) and database type (on-site vs. remote).
NSU alumni living outside of Broward County can register to receive access to library databases.
*Please allow one month for your account to be activated to log-in to use library databases.
The NSU Alumni Association office sends validated alumni requests to the library monthly. Requests are uploaded into the library system on the 15th of each month. You will receive a notification from the NSU Alumni Association to the email you provided on your form when your account is accessible. Library databases can then be accessed by logging into the appropriate box when prompted.
*Please note that due to vendor contract limitations, NSU Libraries are unable to give alumni and current NSU students the same level of access to electronic resources.
Are you in town visiting the Alvin Sherman Library?
Visit the Circulation Desk located on the first floor and present your NSU Alumni Association membership card. Membership cards are automatically mailed out after graduation with your diploma.
