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.

Disbursement of Assignments
Faculty will be assigned study carrels on a first-come, first served basis. Sharing of carrels will be by department or request.

Length of Assignments
Length of assignment is per semester with one renewal. Faculty may go through the application process again at the end of the second semester, and their application will be reconsidered at that time. Occupants are asked to notify the Library if they no longer need their study carrel before the designated period has ended.

Security
Carrels should be locked at all times when not in use. Criss Library assumes no responsibility for the loss of or damage to personal possessions that are kept in study carrels. Failure to comply with study carrel policies will be cause for withdrawal of the carrel assignment. Study carrel policies are posted in each study carrel.
