While the library building is closed until further notice, the Library's online services and resources continue to be available to Northwestern students, faculty, and staff.

Please see this Guide to Essential Services & Resources for more information.

Library DIY

I need help logging in.

Most Berntsen Library resources accessed from off campus require a Northwestern login (same as for theROCK).

Northwestern logins are given to current students, faculty, and staff.

If you try to access an article that asks you for a username and password other than your Northwestern login (or that asks you to pay for an article), you might be visiting a publisher's website without first going through the Berntsen Library. If you have a specific article you wish to access in full-text, visit the guide to finding a specific article.

Some library databases offer free personal accounts in order to save search strategies, articles, or books. These accounts require a unique login and password but are separate from your ROCK login.
