Here are some of the subject headings used in the catalog:
The NSU Libraries use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System for the Main Collection. This organizational system uses a combination of letters and numbers to shelf items according to the same subject.
See the examples in the boxes above and click on the link below to learn more.
Print format books are available by searching the NSU online catalog (see the "NSU Libraries Home Page" link below).
Searches may be limited to just the Broken Arrow campus for convenience. Books available on the Tahlequah campus may be ordered for delivery to the Broken Arrow campus. It usually takes two to three days for materials to arrive via inter-campus mail.
Electronic books: EBSCO provides access to over 25,000 academic books to NSU students 24/7 (see the link below).
Materials unavailable at any NSU library may be obtained via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Interlibrary loan is a free service that allows NSU patrons to borrow materials from other libraries.
Articles are delivered electronically and typically arrive within two days of placing the request. Allow approximately two weeks for books and other physical materials to be received. Be aware that requests are usually filled quickly, but can sometimes take longer. Request ILL items early! Check out the below link to access your interlibrary loan account.
InterLibrary Loan is available free of charge in which books and copies of articles can be borrowed from other libraries. Allow approximately two weeks for interlibrary loan requests to be received.
