The Northeast Iowa Community College campus libraries will mail books to students who live 50 miles from a campus or NICC center and are currently enrolled in an NICC distance education program. A maximum of five books, per mailing, will be delivered to the student's home address. Books will circulate for two months and cannot be renewed. These items will be sent by mail to the student at the College’s cost and are to be returned by mail at the student’s cost. Books must be returned by mail directly to the lending library and postmarked on or before the due date.
Please also keep in mind that a local public library may be the fastest way to receive your books. Many libraries participate in consortia and have access to the collections of other public and college libraries in your state.
Many fulltext articles are available through the NICC library databases such as EBSCOhost, SIRS Knowledge Source and Opposing Viewpoints. When an article is not offered in full text, then fill out the interlibrary loan request form.
Note: If the table of contents is not available through the catalog, then type “Table of Contents” in the comments box with your other location information. The library will email the table of contents to you. This may help you decide if you need the book.
