Member Spotlight - Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC)
Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC), a 2-year public college, is located in Mount Pleasant, Texas and home to over 3,000 full and part-time students. Established in 1984, NTCC offers professional career training as well as degrees and certificates in a variety of fields.
The Charlie and Helen Hampton Library at NTCC has been an Amigos Library Services member since 1985. The library just finished a major renovation project that not only changed the look of the library itself, but also added mobile furniture, multi-purpose rooms, and a café which is bringing in over 400 students a day.
The library saves money by subscribing to the following services through Amigos: Infobase Learning-Films on Demand, Oxford-American National Biography, and SpringShare-LibGuides. Staff also attend Amigos online conferences for FREE as an added member benefit.
Did you know that NTCC and Texas A&M University-Texarkana have a partnership enabling NTCC students to obtain bachelor’s degrees and teacher certification through Texas A&M, all while taking courses on the NTCC campus?
