eLearning & Outreach

IVC class at NIC Sandpoint 

As a student taking online NIC classes using Canvas or Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC) or attending courses at one of NIC’s satellite campuses, library staff is available to provide you with materials and services that will support your coursework. Contact the eLearning department for more information about taking classes from off-campus.

The library's e-research tools are all available online at the library web site. When the need arises, Molstead Library will mail books to your doorstep free of charge if you are a student living more than 20 miles from campus. Books may then be returned to your local NIC Outreach Center, mailed back to the library directly (at your own expense), or you may return books to most local public or college libraries (contact your local library first for confirmation of this service).
