Department of Library Programs & Services

The mission of the Department of Library Programs & Services at the Northern Marianas College (NMC) is “to provide both resources and an environment that enhances and encourages the college’s academic and community-based programs.”

The Library supports instructional curriculum, and academic research for students in their courses of study. The primary goal of the library is to offer a wide range of services to both NMC students and faculty by maintaining a collection comprised of texts, audiovisual (AV) materials and electronic resources that reflect the needs of instructional programs, NMC’s diverse student population and its faculty. The Library also promotes information literacy through ongoing instruction and outreach, and strives to continually offer increased access to online resources and other electronic databases.

The Department of Library Programs & Services consists of four major collections: the Olympio T. Borja Memorial Library, the Pacific Collection, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas (CNMI) Archives, and the Curriculum Resource Center (CRC), an education collection held in concert with the School of Education.
