Library registration

NSCC students

As part of your NSCC Student ID Card Registration, you will also be registered with the Library. Once you receive your Student ID card you can borrow materials from NSCC Libraries or any other Novanet Library. You can request materials to be delivered to your campus, as well as request articles to be delivered to your email account. NSCC Libraries offer a Library Curbside Pickup and Returns Service. Contact an NSCC Campus Library for information on how to borrow library materials.

NSCC employees

After you receive your NSCC employee ID, contact your Campus Library to be registered for library services.


NSCC students, staff and faculty can also register for a CAAL-CBPA card. This inter-university borrowing card allows you to borrow from any CURBA participating library in Canada. Visit your Campus Library for more information.
