During today's visit, students will
Get a RebelCard at the student union and bring it to the Lied circulation desk to have your library barcode activated so that you can check out books and set up an ILL account.
To access library journal and database subscriptions from off campus, you will need your ACE account. Links from the library web site to subscription-only articles, journals and databases will prompt you to log in with your ACE.
Set up an interlibrary loan (ILLiad) account so that you can receive articles not owned by the library in PDF form in 1-3 days. Do this at http://unlv.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/logon.html - you create your own username and password for this account. Remember that ILL articles only remain in your account for 30 days, so archive anything you need to keep longer on your computer.
Set up your Google Scholar preferences to direct you to UNLV journal subscriptions so you can get full text access without paying if UNLV subscribes. Now you will see a UNLV Find Text link in your search results for citations that UNLV can provide online access to.
