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.

FUSE Program Services

Overview

Undergraduate students who have been approved for a FUSE (Fund for Undergraduate Scholarly Experiences) grant may be awarded special loan privileges as it relates to their grant. Students will be sponsored by their FUSE Faculty advisor.

Policy

Special loan privileges will be given to students of FUSE if their grant requires that an item(s) be used consistently for an extended period of time.

Students will be sponsored by their FUSE faculty advisor.

Faculty members who wish to sponsor a FUSE student for special loan privileges may do so by completing the Application for Special Loan Privileges for FUSE Students and submitting it to the Circulation Staff.

The loan period for the item(s) under the loan privilege will be determined by the length of the grant.

All fines and blocks against the sponsored student’s record must be removed before special loan privileges will be approved.

If special loan privileges are approved, the student’s library account will reflect the extended loan period for the item(s).

The special loan privilege is not to exceed two semesters. If the item(s) is/are needed longer than two semesters, after the second semester, a new application will need to be filled out.

Item(s) will be due at the end of the agreed upon semester and the student will be responsible for returning the item(s). However, if the student does not return the item(s) in a timely manner, the faculty advisor will be called upon to make sure the item(s) is/are returned.

The application is not a means of ordering books not owned by the library. If you would like to request books be added to the collection please speak to the subject librarian in your field. Contact information can be foundhere

Procedure

If the required item(s) are not currently available through Criss Library, contact your subject specialist librarian.

The faculty member and student will fill out the application. The application is available at the main service desk and here.

The application will be turned into a member of circulation staff, unless submitted online by the sponsoring faculty member.

Student will either bring item(s) to be used with the application or bring them separately after application has been approved.

Once the application is approved the student will be able to check out the item(s) for the indicated amount of time (maximum two semesters).

The student’s library account will reflect the extended loan time.

Item(s) will be due at the end of the agreed upon semester and the student will be responsible for returning the item(s). If the student does not return the item(s), the faculty sponsor will be held accountable.

Contact Information

For questions and concerns please speak to a Circulation Staff member or call the main service desk at 554-3206.
