The NSCC Library is the best resource available to assist you with the research & knowledge services you need to succeed in your classes. Our staff takes pride in our desire and ability to assist students with a variety of information needs.

Getting Started on Your Research:

1. Review these tutorial videos on researching and writing your paper.

2. Search for materials at the NSCC Library using the NSCC Library Catalog.

3. Search for articles using NSCC's Library Databases. Remember that you can limit your search to
