Welcome to NHCC, Fall 2015



As we start another fall semester and a new academic year, I just wanted to get the word out to everyone about the NHCC library’s services and what we can do for you. We will be one librarian down this year, as Lisa Forslund goes out on sabbatical, but we will attempt to do our best to offer uninterrupted service.

First off, as far as circulation goes, the North Hennepin student ID card also serves as your library card. A student ID card may be obtained from the Information Desk in the ES Building. This ID must be presented when checking out materials or picking up interlibrary loan items at the circulation desk. It is also the ID that students will use to log-in to our databases from off-campus (your Star ID will also work for this). Online students who will never be attending any classes in-person at the college should contact the library for a barcode ID, if they do not have a Star ID.

Books initially circulate for a period of 21 days and may be renewed up to two times by contacting the library in person, by telephone, or with an e-mail. If items are not returned by the due date, overdue fees go into effect and a block is placed on the student's record until the item is returned and/or the fee is paid. For more information about our circulation policies please call 763-424-0737.

The library's staff is available to assist student, staff, and community researchers with their information needs. Questions will be answered at the Reference Desk in person during business hours, or you can call us at 763-424-0733, or send an email. We’ve also added the AskMN service, which is a real-time chat reference service that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The chat widget is found on the right-hand side of the library’s homepage <http://www.nhcc.edu/student-resources/library>.

The library provides interlibrary loan service (ILL) to its patrons through MINITEX, the state-wide library consortium. It is our policy to provide the delivery of requested books, periodical articles, and other materials in as timely a fashion as possible. We send out requests for items the same day the request is received and notify patrons when the items have arrived. These notifications will go to your student email account, so it is important that you log-in and check this occasionally. 

It may take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks for items to arrive, but you will be notified in a timely fashion once they do. ILL items may be picked up at the library’s circulation desk.  Please direct requests to either Beth Finlayson (424-0935) or Craig Larson (424-0733) or contact either of us with any questions. If uncertain how to place a request, one of us can show you.

Items placed on reserve by faculty can be obtained by students at the circulation desk. Reserve items are usually faculty-owned materials and must be used by students in the library. A student ID must be presented in order to check out items from the Reserve Shelf.

We have a fairly good-sized audiovisual collection which is searchable (along with our books and other items) through the library’s website: <http://www.nhcc.edu/student-resources/library>. AV items are available to staff for checkout, but they must be used by students in the library. We have a number of TV/VCR/DVD cart combos that can be used in the quiet areas or study rooms for students to catch up with videos they may have missed in class.

We’ve also got a fairly extensive leisure-reading collection, including fiction and non-fiction bestsellers in the McNaughton collection (although we will be phasing this out in November 2015), as well as our paperback collection, so if you’re looking for something to read just for fun, hopefully we’ve got you covered.

We’re here to assist you in any way possible with your research needs. Let us know how we can help!

Thanks again,

Craig Larson
