A wide selection of digital resources are available to the NDNU community:
To access databases and other electronic resources provided by the NDNU Gellert Library while off-campus, you will need to provide authentication by logging in with your NDNU email credentials. When you select a database or an online resource in the catalog, such as an article or ebook, you will be prompted with a login page. Use your NDNU email username (everything before the "@ndnu.edu" or "@student.ndnu.edu") and password.
Please contact the library via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance in accessing the Gellert Library's physical books remotely. We may be able to provide digital versions of the physical resources you're looking for.
Note that curbside hold/pickup service is no longer available through the Gellert Library.

Books returned to the outside library return bin will be backdated once library staff can retrieve the returns. All replacement bills will be waived for returned overdue books.
If a library item is damaged or lost, contact the Library by email immediately. Patrons are subject to receive a repair or replacement bill if material is returned damaged or more than 30 days after the due date at the following rates:
In lieu of paying a replacement bill for lost material, a replacement copy may be provided at the discretion of the librarian. All replacement copies are reviewed by the Librarians to ensure the exact same title and edition was received and the item is in “like new” condition. Replacement copies are not accepted if used, damaged, or a different edition than the lost item. Do NOT purchase a replacement copy until the Librarian has confirmed that a replacement can be accepted. If you subsequently returned an item after the payment was made, you may apply for a refund by emailing the Library (email@example.com).
