Coronavirus Update

Owing to the present global viral pandemic, and the need to implement self-isolation, the NTC Manchester and Grogan libraries are closed until further notice.

Emails will be responded to as, and when, possible, though please understand that the closure of the campus and library buildings means that we are not able to respond or assist in the ways we could before. There will, at best, be delays in getting back to emails, and we cannot scan documents for people or post out copies of books, so please don’t ask.

If you are contacting us about library items you have on loan:

  1. we cannot accept physical returns at this time and are not accepting items by post (as the campus is closed), so please hold on to them until this period of isolation is relaxed and you are advised otherwise;
  2. current loan items with return dates during this period will have their due date automatically reset to June 1st – this may change as the situation develops;
  3. we cannot provide scans or copies of items from our library collections, as we are closed.

If you are in need of resources, students can check out Moodle https://moodle.nazarene.ac.uk/login/index.php

  1. students can access the Cambridge Core collection (free downloads from Cambridge University Press, for you to keep) via Moodle;
  2. students can electronically access articles from a wide range of journals via the EBSCO host link on Moodle;
  3. students can also check the relevant Moodle page for their class, as the lecturer may well have placed useful links and resources there.

Additional electronic resources have already been added to the Library home page, and we’re working with publishers to add to this.

If, and when, circumstances change we will endeavour to notify our library users so keep an eye on your emails.

As of 5pm on Monday 23 March 2020 the College library will be closed and will remain closed for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. All staff are now working from home so no College admin or teaching buildings are open until further notice.

Classes will continue online as advised by the Dean.

We will continue to notify staff and students of any changes via email. The NTC website and social media platforms will also keep you updated with how we are managing the situation.

In response to the latest government advice, we are stopping all face-to-face teaching on the College campus (for both undergraduate and postgraduate students) as of today, and from Wednesday 18 March 2020, move to using online and videoconferencing technology.  Classes will continue, but will move to the online platform, using a blend of real-time classes and online resources.

The library remains open but on restricted opening hours and students will be expected to observe the social distancing guidelines (keep 2 metres apart).

The majority of NTC faculty and staff will be working from home but are contactable via email.

We will continue to notify staff and students of any changes via email. The NTC website and social media platforms will also keep you updated with how we are managing the situation.
