      Library Cards

      Library cards are NOT needed to access the library's online research databases.


      To obtain your library card, bring a picture I.D.(your WNC employee I.D. is preferred) to either campus library Carson City or Fallon. 

      Library cards are valid for as long as you teach for WNC. There is a $5.00 replacement fee for lost cards.

      Library card benefits include:

      * Borrow materials at any WNC campus library and from the University of Nevada, Reno.
      * Order books or videos from other NSHE libraries and other libraries in Nevada (Interlibrary Loan).

      * No limit to number of books that can be checked out.

      * Courtesy email remainders are sent days prior to the book's due date as a reminder to renew or to return.   


      Access library accounts online using your WNC Library account information.
