What can I do at the Knowledge Center?

As an institution partially funded with state dollars, the University Libraries provide selected services to the general public, which include on-premise use of information resources and limited use of computers.

Certain library and informational resources and services are generally not available to visitors with guest computer accounts. These include, but are not limited to, Document Delivery, Interlibrary Loan, off-premise use of library materials, remote access to many online library databases, and use of computing labs.

The Knowledge Center is an academic library, public with limited use. A graduate of the University can get a community card for free (1 year). A non-graduate can get a community card as well, for a fee of $25 in state and $50 out of state. You must be 18 years or older to be issued a library card. The library card allows users to check out 10 books at a time for 4 weeks at a time.

The availability of computers with Internet access in the Libraries is constrained by space and funds. To conserve University resources and to ensure that University students have priority use, the University limits Internet access to the general public. Internet access is widely available elsewhere in the Reno area, including the various branches of the Washoe County Library.

To get a guest computer account:

  1. Go to the Circulation Desk in Getchell Library or to a service desk in one of the branch libraries.
  2. Present a current photo ID � driver’s license, work ID, passport, etc.
  3. Visitors under the age of 18 must submit a completed Parental Internet Access Consent Form.

To use your computer account:

  1. Go to a designated "guest" computer.
  2. At the prompts, type in your first name, last name, and the barcode number you have been issued.
  3. You may use a guest computer for 60 minutes per 24-day.

Visitors who are affiliated with another UCCSN institution may make a request to be issued a University NetID. A form for this purpose can be obtained at the Getchell Library Circulation Desk or the service desk in any branch library. This applies to wireless access as well.
