What's New!

Take your research to the next level by attending a live Library workshop! Reference librarians will review Library resources, and provide techniques and tips to become successful in your research. Attending a live session is a great way to interact with your Librarians and fellow NCU students, and to get all of your Library questions answered. Workshops are scheduled at various times throughout the week, including Saturdays and Sundays! September workshops are listed below. To register for these sessions, please visit the Library Workshops page.

If you are unable to attend a live session, visit the Library Workshop Videos page to view recordings and to download workshop outlines and full transcripts.
