Books are printed in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of the reader and the interests of the publisher. The small books in this display can provide a window into both, from the daily prayer book small enough for one’s pocket to the artist’s book utilizing a concertina style. The small and miniature books displayed date from 1685 to 2010 and include travel guides, individual titles from large sets, as well as small press and artists’ books. A few of the books are small enough to qualify as miniature books, that is, books smaller than 3 inches in size. The slip cases of selected titles are also displayed in Archives & Special Collections.

   

The newest exhibit in Archives & Special Collections at Criss Library gives visitors a glimpse into the life of Chuck Hagel on the campaign trail in Nebraska in 1996 and 2002. When Hagel decided to run for U.S. Senate in 1996 he was virtually unknown to most Nebraskans. As such, Hagel needed to reach out to communities across the state if he intended to win the election. One way Hagel gained support was through local parades and events. This approach helped Hagel win the election and maintain his seat when he ran again in 2002. The photos on display provide a look into the many events, parades, and other local activities that Hagel, his family, his campaign staff, and his volunteers participated in across Nebraska to garner support for Hagel in his two runs for public office.

ILL Policies

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service designed to obtain materials not available in the Criss Library collections.

Interlibrary Loan is available to students, faculty and staff currently affiliated with UNO, UNL, and UNO Library Friends. Interlibrary loan services are unavailable to those who have outstanding fines or blocks on their library accounts.

The Library uses the ILLiad system to process and fill interlibrary loan requests. Library users must create an ILLiad account before using this service and are encouraged to provide an email account for notification. Unless requested otherwise, books received through Interlibrary Loan are held for pick-up at the Library's Main Service Desk. Requested articles are digitized and uploaded to the user's ILLiad account in PDF format. Notification for materials received, requests cancelled, materials overdue and recalled are made via email.

There is no charge for this service, except in the cases of very rare materials and some dissertation microforms. Users may specify within their ILLiad account how much they are willing to pay. If the lending library charges in excess of that amount, we will verify charges with the requester before ordering the material. All Interlibrary loans are dependent on the availability of requested material from other libraries.

Loaned materials may be renewed online prior to the due date in the costomer’s Illiad account. Renewal requests may also be made over the telephone by calling 402-554-3209, or by emailing Mark Walters. Interlibrary Loan office hours are: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Interlibrary Loan service are also available from the Library's Main Service Desk.
