Our mission is to increase, enhance, and facilitate cooperation among libraries in the state of Arkansas through consortial purchasing of resources, expanding access to resources, and encouraging partnerships between and among libraries.
ARKLink member libraries can be found throughout Arkansas.
ARKLink member libraries participate in a statewide reciprocal borrowing program using the ARKLink Card, allowing students to borrow books from other participating members. (*See below how to register for an ARKLINK Card).
ARKLink member libraries also participate in a courier service delivering materials to member libraries quickly and inexpensively.
ARKLink libraries steward our funds through cooperative purchasing and collection building programs enabling member libraries to maximize their materials budgets.
UAMS employees and students may obtain an ARKLink card from the Library that enables them to check out materials directly from other participating college and university libraries in Arkansas. When planning your visit to other Arkansas college and university libraries, please check the ARKLink participating Libraries list to determine their participation in ARKLink.
How it works:
UAMS employees and students may apply for an ARKLink card at the Circulation Desk in the UAMS Library.
Please obtain your ARKLink card before visiting other libraries.
When visiting other participating libraries, present the current ARKLink card issued by UAMS and your UAMS ID badge in order to register to check out their materials. The number of books that may be checked out is usually limited to 2, but the limit is at the discretion of the library
The user is responsible for any fines for overdue or lost or damaged books from each library.
Any individual having outstanding charges at the UAMS Library may be denied the right to participate in the ARKLink Statewide Card program.
If you are interested in using the ARKLink program as an employee or student of UAMS, please see the ARKLINK website for more information about the service and user responsibilities.
