Searching for Books

There are many ways to search for books.  

One of the best ways is through the Classic Catalog. Type in the title of the book or a Keyword in the search box.  

The Library Catalog searches the "entire collection" including other local academic institutions other than UNR. Under Collection you may select a specific library - ie: UNR DeLaMare Library. Make sure to look at the Status & Location of the book.

If we do not have to book, check LINK+ to see if another institution in our consortium has a copy to lend to us. If other they don’t have it you can Interlibrary Loan (ILL) the book from any were in the world.
