Borrow

The majority of the Health Sciences Library Collections are electronic, and only accessible to those with ACE account privileges, or with the ability to visit Lied Library or the Health Sciences Library and use guest computers.

 
Library Barcodes

A library barcode is required to checkout circulating and physical reserve materials, as well as register to use InterLibrary Loan services.

UNLV students, faculty, and staff with a RebelCard will have their barcode activated when they visit a library service desk to checkout an item for the first time. If you are remote from both campuses and wish to activate your barcode to register for Interlibrary Loan services, you may use the Library Barcode Registration Form.

School of Medicine community faculty and off-site clinical faculty typically do not obtain a RebelCard. These faculty may use the Library Barcode Registration Form to request a library barcode independently of a RebelCard.

All UNLV-affiliated users with library barcodes may borrow circulating materials from any UNLV Library, as well as the other NSHE institution libraries.
