Our Guiding Principles
The Northeast Lakeview College Library, a part of the instruction unit of Northeast Lakeview College, directly supports the mission of the college by providing innovative, technologically advanced, and collaborative library programs. These programs feature reference, library instruction/information literacy, technical services support, and access to appropriate information resources through acquisition, licensing, and resource sharing. The Library's collections and information resources will include traditional and emerging formats and will be appropriate in size and breadth to effectively carry out its mission. By employing and maintaining a knowledgeable, adequately sized, service-oriented staff, the Library will be able to participate and support the college in exemplary teaching and the pursuit of an individual's lifelong learning.
NLC Library Instruction
The focus of our library instruction program is on helping students acquire the skills to search for, evaluate, and use information effectively and efficiently.
The Library offers hands-on instruction sessions on library research, tailored to courses, assignments, and students’ research topics. Instruction sessions will use the full class time. We use active learning in our instruction to engage students and improve learning. Library instruction is available for both traditional face-to-face classes and online classes. Traditional classes meet in our Library classroom – NLIB 124 – and online classes receive instruction via Elluminate. We ask that you give us sufficient time to prepare for your classes with a minimum of one week’s notice for classes in the Fall and Spring semesters and 3 days notice in Summer.
These sessions have greater impact when scheduled close to the date your students’ research assignment is due, and after students have already chosen their topic.
