The information below describes commonly used library materials and how to obtain them.
UNLV has an extensive collection of books for research and relaxation. If we don’t have the book you are looking for, we can usually get it from another library. Borrowing privileges may vary.
Use QuickSearch to look for books in our Libraries. The catalog will give you the book’s physical location and other important information.
In many fields, expert researchers publish their work in scholarly journals. Journal articles can be important sources of information for your own research.
Consult our research guides. Subject specialist librarians provide advice for finding research in their areas of specialty.
Newspapers and magazines are a great way to keep up with current events.
The remodeled Leisure Reading area on the 2nd Floor of Lied Library features a Press Reader Kiosk, which enables downloads of international newspapers directly to your mobile device.
We have an extensive collection of movies – many stream directly to your device. These movies are free to watch, but you will need to provide your ACE account information when streaming these movies from off campus.
Complete information is available here.
You can also use Quick Search to explore our collection of movies and videos. Once you have searched for your title, use the limiters on the right to focus your search on videos. Contact a staff member for assistance.
