How to obtain an ArkLink card from Story Library

ArkLink Card application

Welcome to your "What is an ArkLink Card"guide!

ArkLink is a state-wide consortium of college and university libraries. 

The ArkLink card was established so that college and university students across Arkansas could use resources in academic libraries statewide.

How does the ArkLink Card work?

How does the ArkLink card work?   (The following is a very brief explanation of the ILL process for you.)

  • For example, UALR or Pulaski Tech has a book that you need, right now, with which to write a paper due in two days.
    • (I know--you are doing your homework ahead of time for once!)
  • You bring your student ID and yourself to the Circulation desk at Story Library, along with your address.
    • (Yes, some people do not remember where they live. Please do not be one of those persons . . . )
  • One of our very friendly and helpful Circ desk staff will give you an ArkLink card application to complete. 
  • Once you fill it out, you receive an ArkLink card that with your name and CBC student ID number.
  • Now, you can take your ArkLink card, along with your CBC student ID, to any other college or university library in Arkansas and check out materials from that library.
  • Your ArkLink card expires at the end of each school year (in May). 
  • So, at the start of the fall semester, you will need to reapply for a new one!
