New LexisNexis Academic platform: Nexis Uni

As of December 31, 2018, the LexisNexis Academic was officially retired and replaced by Nexis Uni, which our library has been offering parallel access with LexisNexis Academic since January of 2018. Compared to LexisNexis Academic, Nexis Uni has a more user-friendly interface and more enhanced features on personalization, collaboration, and quick discovery.

New Login Method for Library Account and Online Resources

Please remember that in May, the authentication method for accessing library resources, including My Library Account, was changed. CUA faculty, staff, and students no longer use their last name and 7-digit ID number to login to My Library Account, place CLS/ILL requests, or access online resources off campus. Instead, users are prompted to login using their Cardinal Credentials (network/email username and password). If you need to reset your password, please visit Students from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family and Visiting Scholars  will need to request Cardinal Credentials from Technology Services. If you have verified your Cardinal Credentials are up to date, but are still not able to log in, please contact Access Services in Mullen Library at 202-319-5060.
