Using the bookmarklet

When you are off-campus and follow a link to an article or webpage to which Northeastern’s library subscribes, tap the NULogin Bookmarklet on your bookmarks toolbar or in your bookmarks list. You will be redirected through the campus login page and will then be returned to the resource with full-text access. 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.
