     Knowing how to use a library and its resources is one of the fundamental keys to lifelong, independent learning. Our library faculty welcome every opportunity to help and educate students to learn how to locate the information they need. Molstead Library staff have extensive experience in course-integrated library instruction and working with faculty to provide students with a broad foundation of information literacy and research skills. You are encourage to contact Jim DeMoss by phone at Ext. 3253 or email JEDemoss@nic.edu for more information or to schedule a customized library orientation suited to your students' needs.

 

 

Dunkin' for a good cause 

     Pictured is NIC President Joe Dunlap being dunked by NIC Vice President for Business and Finance Chris Martin. Dunlap and the NIC vice presidents participated in the NIC Presidential Plunge this year. The contest measured how much food the departments for each vice president could accumulate for the NIC Food Pantry, which is opening its doors for the first time this fall. Over 1,000 food items were gathered to stock the shelves. Martin earned dunking rights since his department gathered the most food.
