The librarians at NCCC offer practical assistance to students, which will help them master research, critical thinking, and problem solving skills that will enrich every aspect of their lives. We provide access to the entire SUNY system's libraries, and to streaming video and online databases.
We offer instruction to individuals or groups upon request by any faculty member. We can teach in your classroom, the library classroom, through zoom, or asynchronous methods such as video tutorials and library guides.
We offer mini-instruction sessions on a particular database or citation style, or we can teach for a full class session. We can embed in your Blackboard course for a supportive, more interactive experience for students.
