ARKLink is a program where Arkansas academic libraries agree to share resources. Through ARKLink, NWACC faculty, students, and staff have limited borrowing privileges at many academic libraries across the state of Arkansas.
To obtain an ARKLink card, either click the button below or present your NWACC college ID at the Library's circulation desk. After a short registration process, you will receive an ARKLink card and a list of participating libraries. For more information stop by the library or visit the ARKLink website.
Please note: To reduce the risk of financial liability, ARKLink privileges are extended only to current NWACC students, faculty, and staff. All items must be returned to the library where they were borrowed.
Library materials may be borrowed by current NWACC students and employees. You must present an NWACC ID card at the time of check out to borrow an item from the library. Loan periods vary by item type and are listed below. If you would like to renew a borrowed item, log into your account. You also can renew items by contacting the Library. We will extend your check-out period unless there is a hold on the item or you have renewed it already.
|Type of Material||Limit (Total of 15 Items)|| Loan Period|
|Videos, Audio CDs,CD-ROMs||5 total|
|Math Multimedia||2 total|
The Library's Course Reserves service allows faculty and instructors to make recommended or required course materials in a variety of formats available to their students. Textbooks may be available if provided by the instructor.
These materials are held at the reference desk with limited checkout times to allow all students in a particular course to share the materials equitably. A complete description of the Library's course reserves policy is available on the Course Reserves page.
Interlibrary loan is a service for NWACC patrons to borrow materials from over 6,700 libraries throughout the United States and Canada. Place requests using our Interlibrary Loan Request Form. If you have any problems making a request, please contact the Library at 479-619-3154 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Arrival times vary. A majority of articles are received within 2 to 4 working days of request. Books generally take 6-10 days. When the requested item is available for checkout, you will be notified through NWACC email. Learn more about our ILL policy.
NWACC Library provides a black-and-white and a color printer for student use. A printing account balance of $5.00 is given on a per-semester basis to each student at NWACC. You may use this balance in the Library, Academic Success Center, Writing Center, and Intensive English Lab. After this initial amount has been exhausted, you can make payments in cash or check at the Library's Circulation Desk to extend your printing balance. The printing cost is $.05 per black-and-white page and $.50 per color page. When prompted for a username and password, enter the same login information you use to access My NWACC Connection. To learn more about printing on campus, review the PaperCut FAQ.
Two self-service, coin-operated copy machines are located along the north wall near the Library's Circulation Desk. Copies are $.10 per page.
NWACC Library has 25 desktop computers and 10 laptops available for public use. Each computer includes Internet access, Microsoft Office (Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Access), and printer connectivity. Computers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Laptops may be checked out at the Circulation Desk and can be used for a period of two hours in the Library only. A photo ID is required to check out a laptop. Computer usage must be in accordance with state and federal copyright laws as well as NWACC's code of acceptable student conduct.
NWACC Library has two study rooms. The Multimedia Room is equipped with a table, TV with DVD/VHS player, computer, scanner, and white board. This room comfortably seats groups of 6 - 8. The Small Study Room has a table, TV with DVD/VHS player, and comfortably seats groups of 2 or 3.
Since only two study rooms are available, use by individuals is limited. Single users may sign up to use either room, but if the multimedia room is requested, individuals may be asked to move to another area if a group needs the space. Study rooms may be reserved for a maximum of 3 hours per day. Reservations for study room use are recommended but not required. You can request a study room on a walk-in basis but be aware that both rooms are often in use for much of the day. Study rooms may be scheduled up to one month in advance.
To reserve a study room, call the Library at 479-619-4244, email email@example.com, or stop by the reference desk. We'll need your name, NWACC ID number, the date and time needed, and the number of people in your group. If you have a room preference, please include this information in your request. Out of consideration for others who may wish to use the room, do not request more time than you'll need. When you arrive at the Library, stop by the reference desk so the staff member on duty can verify your reservation and let you into the room. If you do not arrive within 15 minutes of your reservation start time, the Library reserves the right to make the study room available to other students. When you are finished with your study room, please stop back by the reference desk and let the staff member know you're leaving.
