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.
