NEW LOGIN for Off-campus Access

NEW & IMPROVED DB LOGIN!!!
 You can now access any of the research databases off-campus (or via campus Wi-Fi) by clicking any of the links in the Libguides.  Simply enter your NPC username and password when prompted.  Use the same username/password that you use to log into Blackboard or the campus network.  

If you have any problems or questions, please ask a librarian.

Why should I use library research databases instead of a Google search?

Using the research databases from the library has many advantages over searching on the web. Really!  Why else would we pay good money so you have access to this "hidden" web?

5 Good reasons to use databases from the library:

  • Save time! Searching is easy
  • Articles can be saved, emailed, and printed quickly
  • Free! Millions of free full-text articles all in one place
  • Citations provided in MLA, APA, and other styles
  • Reliable, edited sources. No selling, nut job rants, or folks with an ax to grind!
