Faculty & Staff - Library Cards & Loan Periods

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. 

Loan Periods & Renewals

Faculty may check out books for a semester.   Videos/DVDs check out for 3 weeks use.

Books may be renewed once for an additional period of time, if not on HOLD by another patron, by:

  • Clicking on the link in the email notice that is sent a few days before the item is due.
  • Renewing online using your library account information. 
  • Calling a campus library during business hours with your library card information.
  • Bringing the items to the library's desk during business hours.
