Join Our Library Advisory Group

  • Are you a library supporter?
  • Have ideas to make the library better?
  • Looking for a low-key way to give back to the NWHSU community?

The library is seeking students, staff and faculty volunteers to be part of our advisory group.

This is an informal group whom we will contact as needed with questions about existing and potential new services. There will be no regular meetings or Robert’s Rules – just a chance to participate in shaping library services now and into the future.

If you’re interested, CLICK HERE to fill out a short form. We will create an e-mail list and be in touch when we need you.

Come Celebrate National Library Week

April 4-8 is National Library Week. Stop by the library to celebrate with us.

We'll have treats daily (as long as supplies last).

Come Work In The Library

The library may be looking for new Student Library Assistants.

Once we know which shifts are open, we will post our job notice on the school's HR site. Look for it over break. If you have any questions you'd like to ask ahead of time or would like to be notified when it's published, please email Krista Jacobson (

Ideal candidates for this position will have a focus on customer service and feel comfortable assisting with basic computer questions.

Work study students may get priority, but we aren't opposed to non-work study students.

The job application will be available here once it's posted.

Writing Help Resources

If you haven't gotten a chance, yet, please check out the library's Writing & Citing Guide.

You can find guidance on academic writing, citing, and how to contact the writing lab there. You can also find information on how to use Mendeley and Grammarly EDU. Mendeley assists with properly citing your paper while Grammarly EDU will offer recommendations on how to improve your writing.
