Services for Preceptors & Clinical Affiliates

UNE academic departments grant access to UNE library resources to recognize the professionals who work with UNE students or one of the UNE’s academic departments in a clinical, research or field education role.

Library Services for UNE Affiliates

Online Access

Affiliates will receive a login and password to access UNE Libraries’ databases, e-books, streaming video, and other resources.

Your UNE department liaison will provide you with a login and password. If you have not received a login and password, or if they have expired or been misplaced, contact the UNE department with which you are affiliated. Passwords are re-set annually.

The library is not able to give out affiliate passwords without express approval of a UNE department.


Use the libraries on either campus during the hours we are open to the public. Borrowing requires a UNE library card, which are available upon request by emailing

Learn about borrowing from the libraries, including loan times and policies.

Affiliates cannot make interlibrary loan requests through UNE, but your state, local or hospital libraries may be able to order interlibrary loans for you.
