Library Tips: Accessing LexisNexis From Home

You can access LexisNexis (or any other database) from any computer by going to our Periodicals and Electronic Resources page. Click the link for LexisNexis. It will then ask you for your ID and last name. Your ID is your student ID with a dash in the middle (example: 1234-5678). For the last name, just enter your last name only. Capitalization does not matter. If you are having problems, go to our instructions for more information.

Library Closed 11/22 - 11/25 for Thanksgiving

The Library will be closed Thursday, 11/22 through Sunday, 11/25 for the Thanksgiving holiday. It will re-open on Monday, 11/26. Enjoy your holiday!
