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 email@example.com or (402)554-2225.
Relive the excitement of UNO Hockey in Criss Library Archives & Special Collections! UNO began its NCAA Division I hockey program in the fall of 1997. The first Maverick hockey contest was on October 17, 1997 at the Omaha Civic Auditorium – a 3-2 loss to the University of Manitoba Bisons. The display includes memorabilia from the first game including a game-worn jersey from the first Maverick to score a goal, programs, tickets, and photographs along with a signed puck, cowbell, and programs signed by the 2015 Frozen Four Mavericks Hockey team. Video clips from the game can also be viewed in the lobby of Archives & Special Collections.
