Physical Therapy, Movement & Rehabilitation Sciences: Preceptor Info

A guide to library resources and research in physical therapy, rehabilititation, sports physical therapy, occupational ergonomics and health

Access to resources for preceptors--Overview

Welcome to the Northeastern University Libraries! As a preceptor with a sponsored account you have access to most resources current students, faculty, and staff do.Note: Some resources are limited at clinical sites due to restrictions in their licensing agreements. Some may require onsite access on the Boston campus.

Step One

Preceptors: Apply for your sponsored account through the ITS (Information Technology Services) web site.

The sponsoring department is responsible for authorizing your request and renewing your account when it expires.

After receiving notification that your sponsored account has been approved, claim the account by following the instructions in the email.

Step Two

Once you have a sponsored account, you can get a Husky ID card. 

Do you want to come visit the library in person, or borrow physical items?

If so, then you will need a Husky ID card. (If you do not need to use the library in person, go to Step Three.)

Fill out the authorization form to obtain a Husky ID card. (See Husky Card services for information about photo guidelines, pick-up locations, etc.)

Then see Registering for Borrowing Privileges from Northeastern University Libraries. See Borrow & Renew policies.

Step Three

You have applied for a sponsored account, and your sponsored account has been approved. 

Now you can use the same electronic resources as other Northeastern University affiliates. 

Here is the list of e-resources available to you as a preceptor. Some resources, such as Micromedex, are prohibited from use at clinical sites-- a restriction that is uniformly applied to all Northeastern University affiliates.

The list of e-journals is in the E-journal Finder.

To search for a specific book, go to Browse by Title or limit to "Library catalogs" in Scholar OneSearch.
