Curriculum Resource Center Services

Borrowing Materials

The Curriculum Resource Center is a division under the Library Program and Services. The primary role of the CRC is support the needs of students, faculty and staff at NMC; therefore all students, faculty and staff can borrow materials using a current NMC card as a library card. The facility is also open to the public/community members for a fee of $10.00. CRC patrons must present a valid student ID and registration slip in order to check out materials from the CRC. Materials circulate as follows:

  • Presentation of a valid student identification card and a registration slip is required in order to check out and renew materials.
  • Students may check out books, kits, games, maps, and posters for 3 weeks.
  • Students may check out DVDs and videos for 2 days.
  • Term of loan for NMC faculty members is one month for books, kits, games, maps, and posters.
  • Faculty may check out DVDs and videos for 3 days.
  • Reference books, periodicals, are for use inside the CRC only.
  • Borrowers are limited to a maximum of 3 items relating to one topic.
  • Borrowers are limited to a maximum of 10 items in circulation. This insures that several people will be able to work on class projects covering similar subject areas.
  • Fines for overdue materials are $.20 per item per day. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not relieve a borrower from the responsibility of returning an item by its due date.
  • The CRC Program Coordinator will assess damaged materials individually. If an item is lost or damaged beyond repair, a processing fee of $15.00 will be added to the value of each item.
  • Each borrower is entirely responsible for any overdue fines, damage assessments, or replacement costs for materials checked out under his or her name.
