Library Services

Use the tabs below to learn more about the different services available at the library.

Library Accounts

The new library system means that library cards are no longer necessary. Library accounts are valid for as long as you teach for WNC.

  • Your account ID is your NSHE number.
  • Your account password will be your WNC password.
  • All notifications will be sent to your WNC email address or the address registered with the college.

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

Library account benefits include:

* Borrow materials at any WNC campus library.
* 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 reminders.


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 WNC information.
  • Bringing the items to the library's desk during business hours.

iPads for Classroom Use

The library has a number of iPads available to be checked out by faculty and staff for classroom and instructional use. If you would like to check out an iPad, or for more information, please contact Ron Belbin at or 775-445-3229.
