On display on the first floor of Criss Library is the new exhibit, "The Architectural Studies of H. A. Raapke," featuring works produced during H. A. Raapke's student years, circa 1899-1907. Many of these drawings were part of his coursework for two schools in Paris: Altier Préparatoire D'Architecture and École Nationale des Beaux-Arts.

Sixteen of Raapke's original drawings are on display in the windows of the Archives and Special Collections area of Criss Library. The exhibit will run through the end of April 2016. All 59 extant drawings in the library's collection may be viewed in the Criss Library Online Exhibit space at http://unomaha.omeka.net/exhibits/show/raapke.

On display in Archives and Special Collections at Criss Library is Charles Timothy Hagel: A Life in Photographs, a biographical exhibit spanning the life of U.S. Secretary of Defense and U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel. A more in-depth version of the exhibit with some different photographs can be viewed online at: http://hagel.omeka.net/exhibits/show/chuckhagelbiography.

This exhibit coincides with the opening of the first portion of the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives to the community. Researchers may now browse and search inventories of Hagel Photographs, Artifacts, Grant Files, and Schedules in the Archives and Speical Collections database at http://unomaha-public.lyrasistechnology.org/repositories/4/resources/508.

International bestselling author of The Forgotten Girls, Sara Blaedel, will visit Omaha on her U.S. tour for her new book The Killing Forest with an event co-sponsored by UNO Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Library and the Danish American Archive & Library. Blaedel will speak at UNO's Criss Library on Saturday, February 6th at 1pm. Light refreshments will be served. Sara Blaedel is the author of nine bestselling crime fiction novels published in twenty three countries, translated into over thirteen languages, and optioned for film rights.

Blaedel's latest thriller The Killing Forest takes readers on a journey back through detective Louise Rick’s past as she reconnects with the principal investigator at the Hobaek Police Department, her former in-laws, a fanatic religious cult, and her longtime close friend, journalist Camilla Lind. As she navigates through the small town’s cramped network of deadly connections, Louise unearths toxic truths left unspoken, and dangerous secrets. The book is full of fascinating details about ancient Nordic religions.

Criss Library recently purchased the JSTOR "full house", and UNO now has access to all fourteen Arts & Sciences collections, and the Life Science collection. The JSTOR collections stand among the most important archives of academic journals, and the "full house" brings over 2,100 additional journals to the library's JSTOR account.

As is standard with the JSTOR archives, a three-to-five year "moving wall" governs access to articles. Depending on the license negotiated with each journal publisher, articles are released into the archival collections three to five years after publication. More recent articles may be available through the library's current subscriptions, and researchers may check the All eJournals A-Z directory to confirm this. The library catalog also includes records for journal subscriptions and even many individual articles.

For more information about these new resources, please contact Jim Shaw at jshaw@unomaha.edu or (402)554-2225.
