LINK+

Goodbye, LINK+!

Sadly, University Libraries is withdrawing from LINK+ this summer. The last day to place a request is April 15, 2021. Any items you have checked-out and requested on or before that day will be processed as usual with no reduction in checkout and renewal periods. We plan to join another borrowing consortium next year that will provide the same easy access LINK+ has. In the meantime, please use ILLiad and Washoe County Library ILL for InterLibrary Loan requests, or reach out to a Subject Librarian to further assist you. 

If you have any questions about LINK+, contact us at (775)682-5625 or circ@unr.edu.
