Q. Why can't I access my course textbook in the Library?
All required course textbooks are available electronically via your student portal.Most required course books are made available through your NCU Portal in RedShelf. For more detailed information, see the Question: How do I access my course textbooks?
Course textbooks are typically not available in NCU Library due to publisher restrictions. Occasionally you may have readings assigned in an ebook or book chapter available through NCU Library databases, such as Ebook Central, SAGE Knowledge, SAGE Research Methods or PsycBooks.
