Nursing Library Orientation

Welcome to the TUN Jay Sexter Library!

The faculty and staff of the Jay Sexter Library welcome you to Touro University Nevada.

The library offers resources and services to help you in your Nursing journey. This guide is intended to give you an overview and using the library and help get you started on understanding how to use the library as you work towards your degree. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us for help; there is contact information on the left side of each page in this guide.

Getting Started with the Library

As a new student you will need to make sure to complete the steps listed under the tabs of this box. This will ensure you can access the library's electronic resources from on- and off-campus.

You can access the Library homepage at

A link to the Library can be found on the TUN homepage in the upper right by clicking Library. The Library link is also available on the TouroOne portal and on Canvas.

All students need a 14-digit barcode to access online resources from off-campus or to check out library materials on campus. On campus students receive a TUN ID badge, with a library barcode on the back. Online program students receive their barcode number via their TUN email.  

If you do not have your barcode number, please visit, or call the Library at 702-777-1740, on Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, or on Friday, from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm, Pacific time. You can also me directly at 702-777-1741 and I can help you with your barcode.

The vast majority of the Library's collections are online, and available off-campus, as well as on-campus. 

If you would like to access TUN's licensed online resources, you need to register for remote access. Please go to the Remote Access Registration page to complete the registration form. A link to the Remote Access Registration form can be found on the library homepage, in the left-hand column.

Fill out the barcode field with your barcode number (no spaces or dashes), use your TUN email for the email field, and select a username and password for remote access. If you forget your username or password, there is a Reset Password link labeled "Forgot your Password?" at the bottom of the Remote Access Registration page.

If you want immediate help please contact the library--see the help information on the left.

Working through this orientation guide will also give you a grounding in accessing and using the library. As you progress through your studies you will build up your library skills--and help from the library faculty and staff will be there to help you. :)
