About LINK+

What is LINK+?

LINK+ is a catalog of more than 4.5 million unique titles available from over 60 academic and public libraries throughout California and Nevada. This service allows current UNR students, staff, faculty, and community borrowers to request a book not readily available at UNR Libraries.

Be sure to check LINK+ before filling out an Interlibrary Loan request (ILLiad) or placing a hold on a UNR book that is checked out (recall).

How to use LINK+

If a search of the UNR Collection provides 0 results or the book is unavailable in our catalog, click the LINK+ pass-through button. 
This will open your current search in the LINK+ catalog. Paying close attention to the format – no Electronic Resources; Music Recordings; DVDs, VHS & Blu-Ray; Audio Books; Microform­ – select a book record to request. Select Univ of Nevada Reno as your institution, enter your first and/or last name, your library barcode, then hit submit.

Status of LINK+ requests

Books are delivered to the Library & Research Services desk within 2-5 business days. It is important that the library has your correct email address to ensure you're notified. Be sure to check the status of your requests in Your Library Account. Books that are ready for pick up have the status, Ready. Must pick up by mm/dd/yy.

Books will remain on the hold shelf for 10 days then sent home.
