Use NASCAT, our online Library Catalog, to locate books for your assignment.
You can use this link or use the link on the Library homepage.
On the main search screen, select Words in Subject and enter your main topic- such as immigration.
The results list will display the books and videos that we own on the subject.
Always click on the Availability link to make sure a book or video is on the shelves and not checked out to another student.
Once you have found the books you need, take them to the Checkout Desk. With your NCC ID you may borrow circulating books for three weeks.
All books and videos are shelved together by subject. Each item is given a call number. In our library,
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.
First locate the range of books with the first two letters of the Call Number then the whole number that follows.
For instance, the book Troublesome Border by Oscar J. Martinez has the call number:F786.M4
Next, look for the books with the whole number 786 after the F.
After that, look for the books with .M4 after F786.
Finally, follow any remaining letters and numbers in the Call Number until you have the exact book you want.
