Library Information

There are a number of resources that you can access through the Northwest Suburban College Library. Come into the library to borrow a book or find a quiet place to study. If what you are looking for has been digitized, NWSC staff will teach you how to use online search engines to retrieve information.

Students are able to use the library for study and research during regular class hours. The library will be supervised by the librarian on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.  When I am not on campus, I can be reached via email at: [email protected]. The Admissions Associate can also assist you in my absence. There are request forms available in the library if you need help locating information. I will respond to your requests when I am back on campus. The online resources, including the library catalog, are available 24/7, via Populi. 

Course Materials

Students enrolled in certification programs are provided with course materials, including textbooks, uniforms, and applicable medical supplies. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain course materials prior to the start date. Questions regarding course materials are to be directed to the Dean of Admissions and Records.
