Library Services

In addition to the main library on the Gainesville campus (Mary Josephine Cox Library), NCTC also has additional campus libraries on the Bowie, Corinth, and Flower Mound campuses. Students use the online catalog to identify materials and, if the item needed is on another NCTC campus, students can request the item through the on-line catalog. Those who are at the Graham campus, which does not have a physical library location but is assisted through the Bowie Campus Library, may also request items though the on-line catalog. A courier service between campuses ensures rapid delivery of materials.

Students can access many of the library resources online. In addition to traditional print resources, NCTC has an eBook collection and thousands of periodical titles (magazines, newspaper, journals, etc.) from databases accessible from any computer on the college's intranet. For information on accessing resources remotely, students should contact their NCTC campus library (with students on the Graham campus contacting the Bowie Campus Library).

If a citation found in an online periodical database does not provide a link to the full text of the article, students should check to see if the NCTC Libraries has a print subscription and if there is none, students may request the article through interlibrary loan.
