ARKLink  Back to top

ARKLink is a program where Arkansas academic libraries agree to share resources. Through ARKLink, NWACC faculty, students, and staff have limited borrowing privileges at many academic libraries across the state of Arkansas.

To obtain an ARKLink card, either click the button below or present your NWACC college ID at the Library's circulation desk. After a short registration process, you will receive an ARKLink card and a list of participating libraries. For more information stop by the library or visit the ARKLink website.

Please note: To reduce the risk of financial liability, ARKLink privileges are extended only to current NWACC students, faculty, and staff. All items must be returned to the library where they were borrowed.
