Welcome to National University Library!

The University Library is committed to supporting the academic research needs of students, faculty and staff. The Library does this by providing timely access to quality, scholarly, and appropriate information resources and library services, such as reference, information literacy instruction, and inter-library loan services. Students also have access to highly qualified and experienced Library staff.

Library services include:

  • Research Databases - Access to A - Z Databases list containing thousands of journals, magazines, newspapers, e-Books, dissertations, financial data, and other information resources available in the Library.
  • Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL) - Students needing articles, and book chapters not in the Library collection can submit an interlibrary loan request. Students can register for the ILL service by clicking the "Request Interlibrary Loan Items" link on the Library homepage. Students will need to utilize local libraries for print-only materials.
  • Ask a Librarian - Students can receive library assistance 24/7 via the “Ask a Librarian” service. Ask a Librarian allows patrons to search an ever expanding knowledge bank of frequently asked Library questions and their responses, conveniently located at the bottom of the blue, left-side tool bar located on every Library Guide. NU Students, faculty, and staff may also complete an Ask a Librarian Form. Questions are answered promptly during Library Staffed Hours.
  • One-on-One Sessions - The Library offers a variety of personalized, one-on-one meetings with a reference librarian to discuss possible information resources and search strategies for class assignments, papers, presentations, Masters theses, and doctoral dissertations. Learn more and make appointment requests on the Live Sessions Guide.
  • Library Workshops - Library workshops provide in-depth information about using library resources and services. To view the schedule and register for a session, see the Library Events Calendar. If attendance to an event is not possible, recorded workshops are available from the Learn the Library Guide. Students are strongly encouraged to attend or view a Library workshop prior to beginning coursework.
