Access Journals, Books, and UpToDate from Anywhere
The Galter Health Sciences Library would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and continuing residents and fellows. Did you know that you can access all library resources from both on and off campus?
To register for access, you need a NU Net ID which you should have received in an email about your Northwestern email account. It's usually in the format: abc1234
To get started with your registration, just click "My Galter" at the top right-corner of the library's website, and follow the prompts. If you have any problems, drop us an email or contact the liaison librarian for your department. Once registered on our website, just log in with your NU NetID on future visits and enjoy seamless access to all our electronic resources.
Alternative option: use the NU VPN
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA): Beginning July 1, all logins to library resources will require an additional security step using Multi-factor authentication. Download the Duo Mobile app now so you don't encounter any connection issues going forward. Learn more about the library's new MFA requirement.
