How to GET HELP from a LIBRARIAN

Welcome to the Fall 2021 semester!

Need help with finding sources, searching databases, formatting citations, or deciding on a paper topic? The NCC Librarians are here for you.

Both the Mack Library (Bethlehem) and ESSA Library (Monroe) are open if you'd like to visit in person, or you can chat online with a Librarian no matter where you are! Go to the Library's home page and click on the orange "Ask the Librarian" icon to start chatting. 

To find out when we're open, take a look at the Library's hours.

For more ways to reach us, and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), click here. You can also send an e-mail question to askthelibrarian@northampton.edu, or set up a private appointment with a Librarian by using the "Book A Librarian" request form.

We look forward to hearing from you!
