Hello, we're the NCC Librarians!
You can find more video tutorials for our databases on the NCC Libraries YouTube channel.
Many of the databases available through the NCC Libraries have help pages through their official websites as well. An example of this is EBSCO Discovery Service. There may be additional video tutorials available on YouTube.
The Learning Center also has many guides and handouts available to help you create organized and grammatically correct papers.
The librarians at NCC have created online Research Guides to help you get started with specific class assignments. These guides cover a wide variety of courses and subject areas, and can help you to:
Find books in the Library on your topic
Decide which are the most useful library resources and databases to use for locating your sources
Link to reliable websites with high-quality information on your topic
⇒ Click here to see a list of the Research Guides grouped by subject area.
⇒ Click here to see the full list of Research Guides, organized alphabetically by course number.
You can contact a Librarian by e-mail by sending your question to:
We can give you more detailed help if you attach a copy of your assignment to your message. Be sure to include your e-mail address, so we can send documents to you if needed.
If you’d like to speak to a Librarian by phone, call one of these numbers:
If you need to leave a message, be sure to include your name, phone number, course you’re taking, and your research question. One of the Librarians will get back to you as soon as possible, during the hours that the Library is open.
Do you need a book for research (or even for fun) that is not available at either of the NCC Libraries? Did you find the perfect article in one of our databases, but forgot to select full-text and we don't have access to it? Don't panic - you can use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request the book or article from another library. The best part? It's totally free! Fill out a request form here, or inquire in person at either library.
