The Library will be closed this Friday and Saturday, July 3-4th, for the holiday weekend. We will re-open on Monday, July 6th at 7:00 am.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Are you aware of the many ways in which you can contact a Librarian? You can call, chat, text, or send us an email! In addition to these methods, 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 the search box located at the top of the page, or you can browse by popular topics at the bottom of the page.
The Library has numerous online databases to help you find articles for research papers! If you have a “choose your own topic” research assignment, our Opposing Viewpoints or SIRS Researcher databases make it easy to choose a great topic and find sources. CINAHL and Ovid Nursing Journals are the best databases for finding articles about nursing and health. And if you’re looking for articles on every subject, EBSCO and ProQuest are the databases to search. You can find all of these databases (and MORE!) at our Library Database List.
The Library keeps hundreds of popular textbooks in our 2-Hour Textbook Collection for in-Library use. Ask about them at the Circulation Desk or check our list of textbooks and see if we have yours available!
Did you know that you can print to the Library from home or from your phone? Using your NWTC email account, just send an email to email@example.com with your file/document attached. The Library’s printers will recognize your NWTC email account and will load your files to your print list. There is no need to rush to campus in order to print your document right away since you have 72 hours to retrieve your print jobs.
Students can check out Laptops, iPads, Kindles, and Nooks in the Library!
We have 5 HP Elitebook Laptops that are available for overnight or over a weekend checkout. Weekend checkout is Saturday/Sunday except on occasions when the Library is closed on a Saturday, when weekend checkout would then be Friday/Saturday/Sunday.
Our 14 Laptops for in-Library use are available for 4 hour checkout and cannot leave the Library. You are able to print from these laptops just as if you were sitting at a Desktop computer. Laptops must be returned to the Library Desk 30 minutes before the Library closes.
We have 18 iPads that are available for checkout for one week.
Our Kindles and Nooks are available for 2 week checkouts.
