LOUIS (formerly LALINC) Cards: Borrowing from Other Louisiana Libraries

UNO graduate students, staff, faculty, and undergraduates working on an honors theses (with special permission from the Honors Dept.) may apply for a LALINC card (Louisiana Academic Library Information Network Consortium). This is the same system which allows graduate students, faculty and staff from around the state to borrow books from The University of New Orleans, Earl K. Long Library.

This card and a current picture identification card allow these categories of UNO borrowers to borrow from participating Louisiana Academic Libraries. Some participating libraries have extra requirements such as a credit card to borrow materials. Please check with the lending library to confirm their requirements.

Apply for your card using the form below. 

You will be sent an email when your card is ready to be picked up from the Library's Circulation Desk. Please expect two (2) business days to have your request filled.
