Faculty & Staff Support

Faculty and Staff Support Overview

Faculty and staff have access to a wide range of library services and resources to support their instructional, professional, or personal research needs. We welcome your inquiries and the opportunity to work with you. Feel free to contact the librarians anytime at askthelibrarian@northampton.edu.

Library instruction is available for any NCC course, on-campus or online, in which students perform research.

Embedded librarians are available to participate in online courses through Blackboard Discussion Board forums for reference, research, and citation assistance. Embedded librarians will work with students and faculty in a course for the entirety of the semester.

Instructional support materials and services are available to assist students before, after, or in place of library instruction.

Faculty and staff have the option to place items (including, but not limited to, books, videos, plays/monologues, and personal copies of textbooks) on the reserve shelves of the Bethlehem and Monroe campus libraries for students to use. We also welcome material suggestions and can assist with copyright and fair use.

Testing and proctoring services can be requested for specific situations.

Research Assistance and Professional Development

Our full range of databases and electronic resources, along with the print collections (books, journals, periodicals, and more), are accessible to faculty and staff for professional or personal use.

To login to our databases, use your MyNCC network username and password. Faculty and staff may also utilize our Interlibrary Loan service for materials that are not available through the NCC Libraries.

Librarians are available to meet with you for in-depth research appointments to assist you with your work.

Professional Resources in Our Collections:

  • Chronicle of Higher Education
    The library’s online subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education allows one faculty or staff user at a time. Contact the librarians for the login information.
  • New Directions for Community Colleges
