Resources for NSU Alumni


How to Register to Use Library Databases

NOTE: Due to vendor contract limitations, the NSU Libraries cannot give Alumni the same level of access to all electronic resources as NSU students receive. Please review the list of databases available to Alumni and their corresponding access information.

Follow these steps to register:

  1. Sign up for this benefit via the Update Your Alumni Record Form from Alumni Relations. You may update your record as desired.

  2. To register to access library databases, scroll down to the section titled Request Services, check the appropriate box, and supply your NSU ID number. (Note: the security of your information is validated by VeriSign).

    Portion of Update Your Alumni Record Form

  3. Your request will go directly to the Office of Alumni Affairs where your status as an NSU alumnus will be confirmed.

  4. Once a month the Office of Alumni Affairs sends a file of valid alumni requests to the Alvin Sherman Library, and the file is uploaded into the library system. You will then be notified that the account is accessible.

    Please note: Because of the confirmation process and monthly load schedule, it may take up to one month for your account to be activated.


The ASLRITC is a joint-use facility between Nova Southeastern University and the Broward Cty. Board of County Commissioners
