Expanding Services to Supporting Online Learning

In the past few months, the Online Learning team has been hard at work to expand library services to our global community. We’ve worked with various departments across the university and the library to offer robust and dynamic online programs. Here are a few of the ways we've expanded over the year. We are constantly looking for new ways to innovate, improve our services and offer even more programs and online opportunities for our students, faculty and staff. We welcome comments, questions, or ideas for new online initiatives. Please feel free to reach out to Lindley (l.homol@northeastern.edu) or Dina (d.meky@northeastern.edu) at any time.

Supporting Northeastern’s Global Community

Happy National Distance Learning Week! Snell Library is committed to serving all Huskies—all over the globe. Here are some of the resources and services available for our online and distance students, faculty, and staff: -One-on-one research assistance: Did you know you can schedule an individual consultation with a subject specialist? Find your librarian and schedule an appointment online, or contact your subject librarian directly to ask about meeting options. -24/7 research support: the library offers an online chat service, available 24/7, that connects you to librarians from Northeastern and other academic libraries. You can get your research questions answered at any time of the day or night. -Research tutorials: Check out the library’s online research tutorials for help getting started with a research topic, developing keywords, or locating peer-reviewed sources -Interlibrary loan: Found an article you need, but can’t access the full text? Place a request through Illiad, the library’s interlibrary loan service. This service is free to use, and it typically only takes 1-2 business days to fill article requests. You’ll receive an email when your PDF is ready. -Local library access: Through a partnership with OCLC Shares, Snell Library is able to offer on-site access to a group of academic libraries worldwide.
