What is ARKLink?

ARKLink is a program where you can receive a special library card that allows you to check out books from over 30 academic libraries in Arkansas.

To get an ARKLink card you must be current UCA student, faculty, or staff in good standing with Torreyson Library and must complete a registration form. Registration may be done at the Circulation Desk or online.

Checkout period, renewal rules, etc. are determined by the home library and will vary from library to library. Typical checkout period among member libraries in ARKLink is 15 to 30 days.

All ARKLink cards expire at the end of each semester, but may be reactivated at the beginning of the following semester.

Other Arkansas College and University Students and Employees

If you are currently enrolled or employed at another college or university which participates in ARKLink, you may borrow materials from Torreyson library. At the time of check out, you will need an ARKLink Card, available through your library, and an ID issued by your institution. Only your home library can register you for an ARKLink card.

ARKLink members may check out up to three books for a loan period of 28 days. ARKLink members are not eligible to check out laptops or DVDs and do not have access to the Library's databases off the UCA campus.

Students, faculty, and staff of Hendrix College with a current ID are allowed to checkout 3 items for a loan period of 28 days. Hendrix affiliates are not allowed to check out laptops or DVDs and do not have access to the Library's online databases outside of the library.
