Beginning June 10, in order to login to the UNLV Libraries computers, UNLV students will need an ACE Account. This account will replace the barcode login for the Libraries' computers.
Students will still need to register/activate their RebelCard in order to check out books and access the library resources remotely.
The University Libraries are at the center of one of the most potentially far-reaching developments in scholarly communication at UNLV: the launch of the UNLV Gaming Press, a new initiative dedicated to issuing books—both electronically and in print—that share the work of UNLV faculty, highlight the rare and unique materials of Special Collections and provide outlets for the serious study of gambling.
On the second floor of Lied Library there is a table with a plaque that reads, “In honor of Gregan Wingert.” And the story behind this plaque shows how students, alumni and patrons — just about anyone in the community — don’t have to donate millions of dollars to honor a friend or loved one and, at the same time, support UNLV Libraries. There are various ways the public can demonstrate support and come away with a lasting and meaningful memory.
The Libraries are pleased to announce the 3rd issue "Between the Lines," an e-newsletter created specifically with UNLV staff, faculty, administrators and graduate students in mind. As the spring 2013 semester draws to an end, we reflect on UNLV Libraries’ accomplishments for this academic year and how we have grown as a campus.
UNLV Libraries is proud to present the White Rose Exhibit, a chronicle of a non-violent student resistance movement against the Nazi regime. In 1942 a group of German university students, with the support of their philosophy professor, created and distributed leaflets calling for fellow students and citizens to rise up against Hitler’s tyranny. The display consists of large photos of the students, including brother and sister leaders Hans and Sophie Scholl and professor Kurt Huber, with descriptive narratives of the group’s extraordinary efforts.
For a limited time, on-campus students and faculty can try out a variety of video databases from Alexander Street Press. Database titles include Nursing Education in Video, Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video, Dental Education in Video, Filmakers Library Volumes I and II, and more. After you try a database, don't forget to return to the Trials page and let us know what you think!
Although preservation has a distinct meaning at UNLV Libraries, there is a community element as well. Every individual has a history, and these days, that history is contained in millions of ones and zeros that make up digital files on our computers, smartphones and cameras. And, just like a 200-year-old manuscript, that history deserves to be saved.
