NEIU circulation policy
Alumni of NEIU (former students and faculty members) may check out NEIU Library materials, including books and DVDs, if they are NEIU Alumni Association members at the Blue & Gold level or higher. Please present a valid alumni ID card at the Circulation Desk on the 1st Floor. If you are not yet a member but are interested in becoming one, you can register on the NEIU Alumni webpage. Please present your membership confirmation to the Circulation Desk. Please note that Professor Emeriti receive full borrowing privileges as if they are active faculty and do not need an additional membership.
We regret that we cannot process alumni requests for materials from other libraries. If you are interested in requesting materials through inter-library loan, please visit your local public library.
Due to vendor licensing restrictions, we are currently unable to offer alumni off-campus access to our online database subscriptions. However, alumni are welcome to use these resources while on campus where no authentication is required.
Alumni of NEIU have access to RefWorks, a citation management service, through the Library's subscription. Visit the Library Reference Desk on the 1st floor, call (773) 442-4410 or ext. 4410, or email NEIU-Library@neiu.edu for details.
The NEIU Library Catalog allows you to search for books, magazines, DVDs, and other items at the Library.
NEIU librarians created these guides to help you in your research. Most guides include links to free, scholarly websites. Organized by subject.
