Reading Project Help

Help with Library projects for students in Reading classes.

Call Numbers

All books and videos are shelved together by subject. Each item is given a call number. In our library,

  • Books and videos with call numbers A-N are on the 2nd floor.
  • Books and videos with call numbers P-Z are on the 3rd floor.
  • Reference books are on the 1st floor.
  • Reserve items are on the 1st floor in L 102.

Finding Books

Use NASCAT, our online Library Catalog, to locate books for your project.

On the main search screen, select Words Anywhere, and enter your main topic. Ex. Global Warming. 

The results list will display the books we own on the subject. The Call Number tells you where the book may be found on the shelves. In our Library, Call Numbers that start A-N are on the Second Floor while those starting P-Z are on the Third Floor.

Always click on the Availability link to make sure the book is on the shelves and not checked out to another user.

Once you have found the books you need, take them downstairs to the Checkout Desk. With your NCC ID you may borrow the books for three weeks.
