Student Resources

Welcome to the Library

We are happy to assist students in finding articles, books, and other sources for their assignments. While we will help you fine-tune your searches, we will not choose a topic and articles for you. We will be happy to answer APA questions and proofread citations, though we will not create your works cited list for you.

Appointment (virtual and in-person) 


Borrowing Privileges

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Nebraska Methodist College and affiliated staff and employees of Methodist Health System have borrowing privileges at John Moritz Library. Off-campus use of databases are available to NMC students, faculty, and staff and NMHS employees. 


Overdue Items We do not collect fines on overdue items. However you may not check out or renew other items until overdue items have been returned. 
Replacement Fees Every borrower is responsible for library materials checked out in his/her name. Borrowers are billed replacement costs for lost, damaged, or unreturned items to the library plus a $10 processing fee. Bills are sent approximately 90 days after an item is due. The NMC Business Office is notified of outstanding bills and a block will be placed on a students account.
Recall All checked out resources are subject to recall after the initial loan period. Items needed for course reserves or clinical support are subject to recall at any time.

Interlibrary Loan

When an article or book are not available in our collection, you may fill out an interlibrary loan request. We will try to find a copy through a free-lending library. On the rare occasion there is no free option, we will ask if you want to pay the fee or offer to find you an alternative source. Article requests usually arrive anywhere from 1-3 days; book requests may take up to 2 weeks. Requested articles will be sent as PDF attachments to your NMC email.
