Public Library Resources

Many public libraries have study materials available but what you are able to use will depend the library and resource. These resources will require a public library card. Your eligibility to use an electronic resource or borrow a physical book may depend what what city or town you live in.  You will not be able to use your NSCC ID/Library barcode for these resources. 

Some public libraries are starting curbside pick-up service. You may be able to borrow physical books using this service. Please contact your local public library with questions.
