Challenge Nova Scotia

NSCC Libraries is pleased to support Challenge Nova Scotia again! This year’s competition is Friday, Nov. 19 and is entirely online. An important requirement for this competition is ensuring the teams provide credit for ideas and works created by others (i.e. authors and photographers). This is called Academic Integrity and you can learn more by visiting the Academic Integrity Guide.

2021 Challenge Question

As the economy continues to regain strength and as we emerge from the pandemic, what initiatives could you propose that would support local businesses and help further spur economic growth?

How can NSCC Libraries support registered teams?

  • help locating and using reputable resources
  • advice determining what content needs to be cited
  • support in developing a reference list for submissions
  • help ensuring submissions are following NSCC's Use of Copyright Materials Policy

Library staff are available Nov.19 on campus and via Microsoft Teams. Select your campus below for your Library's hours of support, Library contacts, and who to contact for support after hours.
