Hidden Gems: Icky, Yet Intriguing

Academic libraries contain information about a variety of topics, many of which are familiar: history, political science, art, literature, biology, technology -- the list goes on. There are books that stir up arguments, provoke thought, change opinions, enlighten, inspire and inform. But, did you know that -- lurking among these typical titles, waiting to surprise the unsuspecting reader -- there are a few titles that are truly disgusting?

Here, to satisfy your morbid curiosity, are just a few books you might find icky -- yet intriguing. You may want to read them with one eye closed!

The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why It Matters
by Rose George
RA 567 .G46 2008 Stacks, Main and Monroe

We first wonder, as potty-training toddlers, where the...(ahem)... "stuff" goes when we flush the toilet. But if we're serious about protecting the environment, we also need to think about it as adults. The Big Necessity discusses this very sensitive issue, including the public health threat of untreated sewage in developing nations, and what we can do about it.







The Corpse: A History
by Christine Quigley
GT 3150 .Q55 2005 Stacks, Main


Philosophers since the beginning of time have pondered what happens to our souls after we die. But what about our bodies? Have you considered donating your organs, or being cryogenically frozen? How have other societies handled the disposal of deceased loved ones? The Corpse: A History tells more than you ever wanted to know about what happens to us on the "other side."





Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide
by Glenn Kay
PN 1995.9 .Z63 K39 2008 New Books section, Main

Vampires have been wildly popular in books, television and movies for years, but lately, zombies have been coming back to life. The characters in Interview With a Vampire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Twilight saga may be romantic and exotic, but deep down inside, they're just bloodsuckers staring at your neck all through a date. Zombies are casual dressers, goal-oriented, persistent -- and at least you can be sure that they appreciate your brain. Zombies in film run the gamut from radioactive monsters in the 1950s to stars of blaxploitation flicks in the 1970s, and they always out-gross the competition (even if they don't make any money at the box office). Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide includes reviews, filmmaker interviews, and trivia on this gory (yet often funny) sub-genre of horror films.

This Day In History: Mary Wollstonecraft

Many of you may already be familiar with the author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. But what do you know about her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft?

Yesterday marked the birth anniversary (April 27, 1759) of this British author, who was also a pioneer of women's rights. During a time when women were not allowed any legal rights or privileges, Wollstonecraft advocated for women to have the same education as men. She wrote about this subject in her famous book,
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Tragically, she passed away just 11 days after the birth of her now-famous novelist daughter.

For more information about this early feminist, take a look at some NCC Library materials covering Wollstonecraft's life and works.

This Day In History: William Shakespeare

Today we commemorate both the birth and death dates of William Shakespeare (b. 1564; d. 1616). Shakespeare is one of the world's most famous dramatists and poets, although few details of his personal life are known. His plays -- probably the most widely read and translated literary works in history besides the Bible -- have been produced on the stage for centuries, and turned into feature films. Generations of authors writing long after Shakespeare's death have alluded to his ideas, characters and familiar phrases.

The NCC Libraries are full of resources on this amazing and enigmatic author, including materials to help the novice Shakespeare reader understand his stories. Stop by and find out what we have in our collection!

Celebrate National Library Week!

Happy National Library Week! The American Library Association's annual celebration honors the nation's libraries and librarians. This year's theme is: Communities Thrive @ Your Library. Public and academic libraries are both built on the premise that when people come in to use them, libraries foster the spirit of community. Show your support for your community and library by visiting the NCC Libraries to use the computers, relax with the newest issue of a magazine, or pick up a book to read. Some facts about libraries and books:


  • There are more than 120,000 libraries in the United States. This figure includes public libraries, school (grades K-12) libraries and academic (college/university) libraries. Did you know that there are also many special libraries? Medical libraries, law libraries and corporate libraries are just a few examples. Librarians also work in archives, museums and historical societies, and help with genealogical research.

  • There are more than 148,000 professional librarians in America, who hold a master's degree in library and information science. There are also close to 200,000 paraprofessional library workers across the country, who may have undergraduate degrees in a variety of disciplines or other job training. Northampton Community College offers a specialized diploma program, available via online learning, for students who would like to work as Library Technical Assistants. Tuesday, April 13 is National Library Worker's Day, so be sure to tell your favorite NCC Library staff members how much you appreciate what they do!

  • Looking for some classic books to read? Check out Time magazine's choices for the Top 100 Novels of All Time.

This Day In History: Civil War Ends

On this day in 1865, General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate (Southern) Army, surrendered to the Union (Northern) Army at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. This signified the end of the American Civil War, a conflict that had begun four years earlier, which ultimately contributed to the end of slavery, and shaped modern warfare through advances in weapons and medical technology. The NCC Libraries have many resources on the battles, people and events of the Civil War, including the devastating bloodshed that occurred at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in 1863.

Explore Career Options @ NCC Libraries!

Today kicks off Explore Your Career Options Week! If you're an NCC student, chances are you've decided on the kind of job you're looking for and are getting some excellent training for your future. Or perhaps you fall into another category -- you're still trying to figure out what you want to do "when you grow up," so you're attending NCC to explore the options. Either way, it's important to examine your skills and interests -- as well as your likes and dislikes -- while researching the career fields that you interest you.

The NCC Libraries have some great resources to help you explore careers, but you'll also want to visit the Career Services office for help with writing resumés, employment listings and career aptitude tests!

The Libraries subscribe to three databases related to careers:
  • Career Insider: Contains information on careers, industries, resumes, interviews and much more. An account must be created to use all the features of this resource.

  • Chronicle Career Library of Occupational Briefs (To use this database, please contact a reference librarian): Presents information on more than 2,000 occupational titles, including 650 comprehensive occupational descriptions, ranging from those that require a high school diploma (or less) through professional careers.

  • Vocational Biographies: (To use this database, please contact a reference librarian): Features more than 1,000 profiles of careers. Similar to Chronicle Career Library, it provides information on education, recommended courses, training, job benefits, job challenges, working conditions, salaries and descriptions of a typical "day on the job."
Here is a sample of the wide array of career books available at the NCC Libraries:
