NU Login Bookmarklet: Desktops and Laptops

These instructions are for adding the library's Login Bookmarklet to your desktop or laptop computer browser.

The bookmarklet lets you reload a web page through the Northeastern Library's proxy, or authentication system. If the library has a subscription to the site and you are not on the Northeastern network, you will be able to login with a valid NU account and get immediate access to the site.

How Do You Install the Bookmarklet?

Right-click on the following link, then select the "Bookmark This Link" option:

 

Google Chrome

Drag this link to your bookmarks toolbar:

 

Internet Explorer

Right-click on the following link:

Select the IE "Add to Favorites..." option. You may be warned that you are adding a link which may be unsafe. While some links like this may be unsafe, we believe this one is safe. You can click whichever option is required to continue.

Once You've Added the Bookmarklet to your Browser, How Do You Use It?

When you are off-campus and follow a link to an article or webpage to which your Northeastern affiliation gets you access via a library subscription, just tap the NULogin Bookmarklet on your bookmarks toolbar or in your bookmarks list. If you have not logged in to the library's site already, you will be redirected through the campus login page. You will then be returned to the resource with access as if you were on campus.  You may need to select the Bookmarklet for each link, but you will only have to sign in the first time in your session.

If the library does not have a subscription to the resource, you will not be able to get access through the bookmarklet.  Please contact us if you have a question about our subscriptions.
