The UNLV Bibliography is a showcase and record of the scholarly and creative output of UNLV researchers. This project preserves, increases discoverability, and provides additional access to UNLV research while enhancing the visibility of UNLV faculty and increasing the impact of their work.

This series includes a list of entries covering works published in 2021.

The University Libraries will update the UNLV Bibliography to build a comprehensive and current bibliography reflecting the full scope of research and creative activities at the university.
