Be Quick, dont wait:

Please verify as soon as possible that you are able to access NERS, don’t wait until the last minute — the 56 requests are a lot to absorb.

For any NERS related questions, including changing your password or determining who your site contact might be, please contact the NERS team at ners@new.igelu.org.

Your organization’s NERS contact may not have any SFX responsibility at your library, so be sure to check in with them and make sure someone votes for your organization.


Some voting tips:

  • Occasionally the ballot behaves badly and does not recalculate your total votes after entering/changing a vote.

If that happens, clicking anywhere on the ballot page outside of the text/votes box seems to get the browser to refresh the total vote count.

  • In case of doubt, do logout and then login again. All applied votes remain in NERS.
  • At any time, click on “Print Votes” button to check if all your votes were correctly applied and recorded in NERS.
