Reference books are located on the 2nd, or main floor, of the library. They cannot be checked out. However, copy machines are available for your convenience. Copies are $.15 apiece in our library. (Cash only; no student ID card swipe is available at this time.)
Are you a person who needs a quiet environment in order to study effectively?
There is a Study Room in the Library has been designated as a Quiet Study Room. You may sign out one of the eight available spots for this room if you want ABSOLUTE SILENCE. This is different than a Group Study Room; you need more than one person to use a Group Study Room, and quiet collaboration is allowed. The Quiet Study Room does not allow talking, use of headphones, or any other noise that may disturb others using the room.
Ask at the Circulation Desk if you would like to use this room. You will need your current, barcoded NCCC ID card.
Here are a few topical books from our Reference collection that may help you to choose a topic, or get some basic facts and statistics for a topic you have already chosen.
