Self-help Guide for Navigating the Library

I need help logging in.

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

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.
