Criss Library will be undergoing a limited remodel that will last through approximately Mid-November. Remodeling will occur on the 1st and 2nd floor. When all the noise is finished and the dust settled Criss Library will have three new spaces for patrons to enjoy. Archives & Special Collections will have an updated space on first floor. Second floor will be home to a New Classroom and the expanded Creative Production Lab. The library will be open during construction, so please pardon this temporary inconvenience.
UNO Criss Library will be displaying entries from Through Our Words: Fifth Annual Creative Writing Contest in Spanish on the lower level from September 15 - October 1.
O Pioneers! (Kindle or ePub) Willa Cather's first great novel, is a work in which triumph is inseparably entangled with tragedy, a story of people who do not claim a land so much as they submit to it and, in the process, become greater than they were. ...Or, Herman Melville's tale of corporate discontent, Bartleby, the Scrivener (Kindle or ePub), tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City. One day, Bartleby declines an assignment with the inscrutable "I would prefer not," the utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations.
