Everyone needs to create their online library account in order to gain access to ebooks, databases, and, of course, renew or request items. The first time you use your account, you will need to create a password. Your NU ID number is the 8-digit number on your MavCard.

Criss Library will be undergoing a limited remodel that will last through approximately early 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.

Criss Library's Archives & Special Collections will be undergoing renovations impacting access to the department’s reading room and collections until the beginning of November. Researchers must contact staff in advance to make an appointment to use collection material in a temporary reading room. There may be some periods of time when collections cannot be retrieved without notice several days in advance. In the library and looking for Archives & Special Collections staff? Library staff at the Main Service Desk will direct you to Archives & Special Collections staff while the department undergoes renovation. Contact Amy Schindler at acschindler@unomaha.edu or 402-554-6046 with questions.

Faculty Library Assistant Services Policy

Faculty Library Assistant (FLA) Service to Faculty

Faculty members who wish to authorize a FLA to take care of library business for them may fill out the online FLA form, download this PDF to fill out and return to the Main Service Desk, or you may acquire a copy of this form from the Main Service Desk. Each faculty member may have a total of two FLAs per semester.

The signed application will be kept on file to verify your FLAs authorization and renewal notices will be emailed to you near the end of each semester. FLA's will need to present their University ID card and inform Library staff they are Faculty Library Assistants.

New Faculty Library Assistants

After a faculty sponsor has authorized you to be a library assistant, your name will be placed on a list of current assistants.

When you wish to conduct business for your faculty sponsor, please give the library staff member on duty your name and the name of your sponsoring faculty member. You will be asked to produce a photo ID such as your student ID (MavCard) or a driver's license to ensure that you are an authorized assistant.

You will not need your sponsor's ID card or library account number. Anything you check out in your capacity as a library assistant from the Main Service Desk will be charged to a special account under your faculty sponsor's name.

Library Assistants should not check out any materials for faculty sponsors on their personal library accounts. You are responsible for any items charged on your account number, including any resulting fines or replacement costs.
