Distance Education Services: Home

Any student enrolled in an online course at Carteret CC will have access to library resources and borrowing privileges identical to every Carteret CC student in good standing.  Librarians and other staff members assist distance students in the same manner as they assist all students, faculty, and staff.

Please contact the library with any questions about existing services, or suggestions for new services.

Research Help

A number of Research Guides are available to help you with your research. Here you'll find subject-specific information on the resources you'll need to conduct research. These guides are designed to support both seated and distance learning students, providing lists of information resources along with basic information about how to access and use them. 

Citation guides are also available. The guides include step-by-step instructions on how to format and document sources used in your research papers according to the APA and MLA citation styles.


Nearly all of the magazines, newspapers, journals, and other periodicals available to CCC students can be accessed off-campus. The vast majority of the article databases are available to you at Carteret Community College are located in NCLIVE. If you are off-campus, you will need to log in to access NCLIVE. Log in with your campus username and password OR enter your CCC Library card number.

Different databases contain different kinds of articles, so finding the right database for your research is an extremely important first step in your research. Below is the link to all of the databases available to you as a CCC student.

At times your instructor may ask you to use scholarly, research articles for your research papers or projects. As periodicals can be popular or scholarly be sure review the slideshow below for a quick introduction to research articles.


If distance prevents a student from visiting the campus to obtain a library card or to check out library materials, the student may contact the library for information on how to get a library card and ask about our mailing service for distance learning students. Requested materials will be mailed, shipped, or faxed to the distance student as appropriate.

Interlibrary Loan

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service allows you to borrow books and journal articles from other libraries through the Carteret CC Library. This is a free service for Carteret CC students. To inquire about Interlibrary Loan, contact the Circulation Desk at 252-222-6213.


Carteret CC students have access to reference, scholarly, and professional full-text books online. Students new to using eBooks often have questions about what they are, how to search for them, and how to use them. eBooks are generally no different than print books as the vast majority of eBooks have print counterparts. While eBooks are electronic resources, they are not web resources--they are books--so don't be afraid to use them in your research.

Carteret CC students have access to eBooks through a handful of NCLIVE databases. You can search the NCLIVE eBook collection by using the search box below.
