About the Library

Codes of Ethics

Professional societies usually have a code of ethics to advise their members on how they should behave. This list will take you to some of the codes of ethics for various journalism- and strategic communications-related societies.

Interlibrary Loan

If we don't have the book you're looking for, you can submit a request through Interlibrary Loan or Link+. We will then borrow the book from another institution.

Link+ is a good place to start as books will get here within three days. You can then have the book for three weeks with one renewal. If you can't find your book through Link+, try Interlibrary Loan.

Finding Books at UNR

You have several ways to find books at the Knowledge Center. You can use the OneSearch database to look for both print books and ebooks that we own. The benefit of OneSearch is that you can search the library's catalog along with most of our databases at once.

However, if you want a book specifically in our physical holdings, you can also search the library's catalog. You can even browse through books on a similar topic online using the catalog.
