A guide to acquaint Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine faculty with the School of Medicine Library at the Shadow Lane Campus.

Welcome!

Community Faculty are an integral part of the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine. The School of Medicine Library welcomes you to use our library resources and services. This page provides information to help you utilize library services.

 

Important Information

Requesting Library Barcodes

Community Faculty who would like to request articles through interlibrary loan will need to either have a RebelCard or request a library barcode. Library barcodes are generated by the Access Services Department of the UNLV Libraries. In addition, you will need to send a copy of your Terms of Appointment (TOA) with expiration date to library.access@unlv.edu. Your TOA will provide proof of your affiliation and duration as Community Faculty with the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine.

Please check with Angelina Sioco, Community Faculty Manager, on how to locate your TOA (angelina.sioco@unlv)

The ACE Account allows access to computers, software, printing and library resources. It is managed through the University Office of Information and Technology.

  • The School of Medicine's Department of Human Resources determines your need for an ACE Account, so please contact them if you believe you should have one and do not.
