The Library's mission to support learning includes the professional development of NWACC's faculty and staff. We provide a number of resources and service that encourage and facilitate professional growth.
|Professional Development Collection |
The Professional Development Collection (PDC), located in the main Library in Burns Hall, is supported, developed and maintained through the collaborative efforts of the Library, Faculty Development, Staff Development and Title III. PDC books, videos, journals and other resources are available for your use. Browse these resources in the Library and online via our subscription databases.
We have hundreds of items in the Library on the subject of professional development, including books, videos, and audio CDs. Many of these items were provided to the Library by Faculty Development and Title III.
