Computer and Printer Access

The library has 15 desktop computers equipped with software for student use and also provides short-term loans of laptop computers. Library staff can assist students with SIS accounts, Canvas, Zoom, wireless access and basic software.

The library has one black and white printer, that requires Easy Login. Each term, students get an allowance for free printing and need to pay for printing that exceeds that limit. Wireless printing is also available. 

The Tutoring and Writing Center

Free tutoring by NCC faculty and professional tutors in Math, Writing and other subjects is available to all students, free of charge in the library.

Lost or Damaged Library Materials

When library materials including laptops are damaged or lost, the borrower will be billed for the replacement costs. Until the student’s library liability is cleared, a hold placed on the student account will prohibit registration for future courses and/or receipt of transcripts. Any library materials obtained through interlibrary loan are an extension of the NCC library and therefore are bound by the same return policies.
