Getting Started

There may be times when you are unable to come to the library because of illness or inclement weather. You may want to make use of library resources during hours when the library is not open. There may even be times when the library is forced to close due to an epidemic or extreme weather conditions. Fortunately, many of the resources offered by the NECC libraries are available from remote locations twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week year round. This guide is designed to help you locate the full-text of books and articles for your research even when you can't come to the library.


Access from Off Campus

To access NECC library databases from off campus, you will need an NECC library card number. If you don't have one, come into the library and get one. If you are are taking online courses, you can also request one online.
