Course Reserves & Textbooks

The Library remains committed to providing access to textbooks and other required readings when possible. Courses with required texts available electronically can be found here: HELM Catalog > NSCC Courses.

Given that Fall 2020 courses are taking place online and the library space is closed for the foreseeable future, we are unable to lend physical textbooks and other items from our course reserve collection on campus. When feasible and if the Library is able to obtain an institutional license, we will purchase an electronic copy of any textbook or required reading material for Fall 2020 courses. Purchase requests can be made here: Purchase request form.
