Nichols Library

Library Hours

Remember, our databases and online resources are available 24 hours a day!

How do I login to the databases or login to access the e-books? 

Good question all you need is your Faulkner student ID# and your password, the same that you use to login to your Faulkner email. (THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM YOUR BLACKBOARD LOGIN) 

Not sure what your Faulkner email password is or you can’t remember your password? You can reset it…

  1. Go to the main Faulkner page.
  2. Go to Quick Links on the top right of the screen, a dropdown box will appear, click on MyFaulkner.
  3. Click on “forgot your password”
  4. Fill out the form to reset your password.

Now all you need to do is choose a database and begin researching…Not sure where to go from there, we can help with that, too. Just let us know. If you have any difficulties logging in or if you have any questions in your search for information please feel free to fill out this Ask-A-Librarian form or call us at 386-7207.

Have you seen our new Library Catalog? Check it out…

You can use the search box to find information by keyword, title, author, or ISBN; you can also do an advanced search narrowing or limiting your search to only books or e-books. After performing the list of results or hits will appear and you can use the left side of the screen to narrow down your search by language, date, subject, or material type. Let us know if you have any questions.

What is Journal Finder?

Are  you looking for a specific journal article or are you wanting to search within a specific journal but you are not sure if the library holds that journal? Then you can use the Journal Finder link to help you locate all of the databases that include that journal. All you need is the journal title.

Interlibrary Loan

Need a book that is already checked out or an article that we do not have access to? Fill out the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) form and we can try to find it at another library and have it sent here for you to use. Another good reason to start researching early.

Consortium Privileges

As Faulkner students (If you can get to campus), if we do not have a book that you need or if our copy is checked out but you find that Alabama State University, Auburn University Montgomery, Huntingdon College, or Troy University Montgomery Campus has it, then you can see us at the front desk in the library and we can give you a sticker and the needed information.

What will I need?

  • A current Faulkner ID
  • A current Faulkner library account
