Hello, and welcome to NDSU Libraries. I’m Al Bernardo, librarian for HDFS programs. Below, find information about remotely connecting to NDSU Library resources, as well as recommended library resources for research in Youth Development, Gerontology, and Family Financial Planning. Please don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about library access and research. I am also happy to meet for research consultations via Zoom.
How to Access NDSU Library Resources Remotely
- NDSU Library Website and CAS Login
To access online resources provided by the NDSU Libraries, you must navigate through the links provided on the library website. When accessing any password-protected library resources, you should see the CAS login screen (image below). Sign in with your NDSU username (usually firstname.lastname) and passphrase. These are the same credentials you would use to log in to your NDSU Blackboard or Zoom account.
- Connect Google Scholar to NDSU Library
Another option for accessing some NDSU Library-provided resources is through Google Scholar. Follow the instructions at this link to set your Google Scholar preferences to connect to NDSU Libraries.
- Distance Check-Out of Physical Library Items
All NDSU Online students have the ability to check out books and other physical items from the NDSU Library. To do this, log in to your Interlibrary Loan account. From there, click the green "Create Request" button, and choose the Book option. Enter the book information (author and title, at minimum), scroll down to the Mailing Address section, enter the address to which you'd like the item shipped, and submit your request. The book will be checked out to your library account and mailed to you with return shipping included.
