Borrowing Privileges

Library Privileges

Starting on August 24th, the TDRL will be open to UNLV/NSHE students and staff only. P12 educators may continue to request materials using the "Request" feature in QuickSearch and pick up materials at one of the University Libraries locations. Accessing University Libraries facilities beyond picking up library materials for Non-NSHE affiliates requires an appointment.

To create a library account virtually, please contact Ajax Delvecki (ajax.delvecki@unlv.edu). To finalize account creation, please bring the following with you to the library service desk at Lied Library or TDRL: 1.) government issued ID, 2.) proof of NV address, 3.) proof of employment in a P12 school (contract, ID card, etc.)

Below are some of the most common account types used by the TDRL. To view the complete list of UNLV University Libraries, go to Access and Privileges
