    Library Technology

    The NPHS Library currently has our full catalog of books online.  Students can go to the library website and search the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) either at school or at home to see what books are available at the library. 

    In addition, the library subscribes to many online databases.  These sources contain timely and accurate information for academic research which is often preferable to many of the sites found through a standard search engine.  All databases can be accessed at home using individual passwords.  See Ms. Arkans, in the library, for details.
