NCC Library Collection and Services

The Northwest Iowa Community College Library provides access to information in a wide variety of materials to support all programs offered at the college. The library currently has over 18,000 materials in its collection, including books, videos, CDs, audio book collection, and periodicals. Interlibrary loan services are also available to NCC staff and students for those materials not held in the collection. Online databases such as EBSCO and Proquest, require user names and passwords for access off campus. Please see a library staff member for assistance.

Other library services include two small conference rooms for groups or viewing videos, computers, a printer, a photocopier, and a fax machine. Wireless access for notebooks is also available. Students can use their ID for checking out materials, or a library card can be obtained during normal library hours.
