Library Resources

Schauffler Library contains thousands of digital and print resources for study, research, and enjoyment.

Here’s an overview of what’s available to all NMH students.

Resources You Can Borrow

• Students can borrow books, movies, music, audiobooks, camcorders, cameras, projectors, screens, laptops, iPods, iPads, graphing calculators, and more.

• If what you need isn’t listed in our catalog, we can probably get it for you through interlibrary loan.

• Members of the NMH community may suggest that the library purchase a book by using this form.

Research, Citation, and Technology Support

• Reference librarians are here to assist you with research on days when classes are in session and during study-hall hours. Whether you want help locating resources for a class assignment, need a refresher on bibliographic format, or need basic technology support, librarians are your go-to source.

• More than 100 digital databases — from “African American Experience” to “World History in Context” — are available online.

LibGuides, subject-specific resource guides, support specific class assignments.

NoodleTools helps you organize your research, capturing your source references, notes, and ideas in one place.

Publication Finder lists the journals, magazines, and newspapers that NMH subscribes to and fetches full text from them.


The library’s makerspace offers 3D printing as well as 2D printing, copying, and scanning. Special Makerspace events include 3D-printing contests, knitting gatherings, and button making.

This past summer, I increased my awareness of my identity by reconnecting with my native country, Ethiopia.


“I don’t think I would be anywhere near the person I am today if it wasn’t for NMH. It’s enlightened me about so many different things, and I’ve met people from everywhere you can imagine.”


In my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.


"One of my biggest influences has been my math teacher. He built this love of math in me—specifically, the idea that math can be used to interpret the world." 


"The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow."


"Almost all of our classes are conversation-based, which means that you're totally engaged in classroom discussion."


"I enjoy helping my friends, and it's given me a new respect for teachers. I may even go into teaching myself one day."


"In VOTES, I learned how to prepare and present—skills I drew on in Washington."


 "This year, I'm field hockey captain. I enjoy giving advice and support."


“I like that you can start completely new things. You can reinvent yourself.”


Dance has taken this creative learner on an artistic journey.

 “My teachers told me to use my own voice, and they pushed me to think about what I really believed in.”


"The curriculum here is hard, but it’s the right amount of hard."


“The academics are extremely rigorous, but because of the way teachers present things, it’s like, ‘I have school today!’”


“The learning you can do in a study-abroad program can outweigh anything else you can do even at a school like this.” 


“NMH encouraged me to explore new things, try everything, and see what’s best for me.”


“You’ll always find a place here as long as you just be yourself.”


“There is a community here that cares about you.”
