What is NC LIVE?
NC LIVE consists of a huge collection of information found in databases and websites made available through all state public and academic libraries via the Internet by the state of North Carolina. The information includes articles in thousands of magazines, journals and newspapers, as well as contents of encyclopedias, directories, proceedings, almanacs, and worldwide library catalogs.
How can I get to NC LIVE? Do I need a password?
- On campus: NC LIVE can be accessed without a password from Internet-connected terminals in the library and elsewhere on campus, either via a library webpage link or by typing nclive.org.
- Off campus: NC LIVE can be accessed off-campus through Moodle after logging in, in the left column under Resources, then Library Resources. If you are a student but for some reason do not have access to Moodle, a password is available to current Isothermal students and staff, which can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For verification, please include your full name and the last four digits of your Social Security number -OR- full name and date of birth. Passwords are changed annually.
How do I use NC LIVE to find information?
