Information for Faculty
The NECC Libraries offer a service designed to guide students to the most appropriate sources for a particular class or field of study. LibGuides are web pages where librarians gather and organize sources and provide research tips on topics ranging from Biology to Sociology. Because they are created by NECC’s librarians and highlight NECC library resources, they are uniquely useful for our students. LibGuides may be created for individual courses as well as for general subject areas. We have also published specialty LibGuides on topics such as When You Can’t Come to the Library and on using the NoodleTools citation helper.
LibGuides are searchable on Google and are easily accessed from the library web page. They may be browsed or searched by subject or author. If you are interested in having a LibGuide to complement your course or subject area, please contact us. More guides will be added regularly. We look forward to receiving advice from faculty on what topics to cover in the LibGuides we publish in the coming months.
The NECC Librarians provide information literacy instruction for NECC classes. These sessions may be scheduled at any time the library is open. Days, evenings and Saturday mornings are included. Sessions are taught by a Reference Librarian, but the class instructor must also be present. The sessions are highly recommended for Comp 101 classes, and are useful for any class which includes a research component. Each of these sessions is designed to fill one fifty-minute class period. Please call or email to reserve time for one or more sessions at your earliest convenience.
The three types of classes we offer are:
Incorporating library research into your class assignments can help your students to better understand how information is published and organized in the library and on the Web. NECC Librarians, with expert knowledge of the availability and organization of print and electronic information available, can help you to design effective library research assignments that avoid confusion and frustration among your students. Librarians can also help you to prevent and detect plagiarism.

With your help, librarians can make library resources and services more accessible to your distance learners. Contact Ann Grandmaison at the Bentley Library at (978) 556-3426 or email@example.com.
It is easy to incorporate our electronic resources into your BlackBoard course with a few simple steps. To take advantage of this course enhancement, please contact one of the librarians
As experts in your academic discipline, you have a unique understanding of the current resources that will enhance the learning experience. We are dedicated to making these resources available to you and your students, and would appreciate your insight concerning our collections. If you have a particular item that you think would be a valuable addition to the libraries, please let us know.
Faculty may need to use materials that are not accessible or available in our collections. In the event that information cannot be obtained from any of NECC’s sources, consult with a librarian or use the online request form.
The library will process up to 15 interlibrary loan requests per person each semester for NECC-related course work. Some restrictions apply. Students and faculty requesting an interlibrary loan related to course work at another institution will be referred to that institution’s interlibrary loan services.
Faculty may place reading materials on reserve at the Circulation Desk at either library for the duration of the semester. The items can restricted to “library use only” or may be checked out by students for a period of time chosen by the faculty member. Current “Reserves” are listed on a separate web page so that students can locate them easily. For more information, please contact Helen Mansur on the Haverhill campus, or Mike Hearn on the Lawrence Campus.
