Library Computer Use Policy

Use of Equipment and the Network

Use of Library equipment and the network is granted subject to Library and University policies, and local, state and federal laws.

A valid Northeastern Illinois University NetID or a temporary guest pass is required to access Library computer terminals. 

NEIU alumni may obtain a valid NetID by visiting the Office of Alumni Relations (Building I), followed by a visit to Student Computing Services (B 107).

Guests without a NetID can obtain one temporary guest pass per day by visiting the Library Circulation desk with a photo ID. Guest passes work on all public computers in the Ronald Williams Library and Main Campus Computer Labs. They are valid for two hours.

Extended time is available for current students/staff/faculty from another college or university with a current University ID at the Library Circulation desk. Guests who are unaffiliated with another college or university and need additional time must schedule a research consultation to certify that their research needs require extended access to NEIU Library’s online resources. Schedule a consultation by contacting Mary Thill, Reference Coordinator, at (773) 442-4405 or m-thill@neiu.edu.
