It’s no rumor…the Library has gained some new neighbors! You will now find Academic Coaching, the Math Lab, and the Writing Lab within the Library in SC215. The purpose of this permanent move is to tie together key services and resources for students and have them in one central location.
Need to utilize one of these areas? You can view the tutoring lab schedules here: http://www.nwtc.edu/services/advising-counseling/academic-coaching/Pages/TutorSchedules.aspx.
Your instructor wants you to use peer-reviewed journal articles. Hint: that does not mean that your friends need to read the articles first. It means that experts had to read the article before the author could publish it. The Library makes it easy to find those high-quality journals by letting you click “peer-reviewed” in Library search. Pretty easy, huh?
The NWTC Library has popular textbooks that you can check out for 2 hours and use in the Library. Check our list of textbooks to see if your books are available!
This Saturday, October 11th, is Star Wars Reads Day. This is an initiative that celebrates reading and Star Wars. Never underestimate the power of reading!
May the Force (of literacy) be with you
Have no fear! Search for these little signs pictured above that have been placed on multiple tables throughout the Library. These are laptop-friendly tables because they are located next to outlets for you to charge your devices. Work on your paper longer without draining your battery!
There are numerous ways in which you are able to contact a Librarian (call, chat, text, and email). However, if the Library is closed, or if you would like to find an answer quickly on your own, you can go online to our “Ask a Librarian” section that displays featured, most popular, and recent answers to questions that are asked of Librarians. You can search for an answer to a question via a search box located at the top of the page, or you can browse by popular topics at the bottom of the page. If you are having trouble locating an answer, we are still available by other means!
