Criss Library will be undergoing a limited remodel that will last through approximately Mid-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.

    

O Pioneers! (Kindle or ePub) Willa Cather's first great novel, is a work in which triumph is inseparably entangled with tragedy, a story of people who do not claim a land so much as they submit to it and, in the process, become greater than they were. ...Or, Herman Melville's tale of corporate discontent, Bartleby, the Scrivener (Kindle or ePub), tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City.  One day, Bartleby declines an assignment with the inscrutable "I would prefer not," the  utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations.

American Archives Month

October is American Archives Month and Criss Library’s Archives & Special Collections is marking the occasion with new exhibits, online access to finding aids for collections, and more throughout the month.

Visitors to the library will have two new displays to enjoy in the library. The first exhibit will share the history of computing on campus in the 1960s and 1970s when mainframe computers were as large as a room. In the fall of 1974, Arthur Paul donated his private collection of over 1,000 titles related to Afghanistan to UNO. This exhibit opening in the second half of October will showcase a few items from the collection that has grown to include over 20,000 titles 40 years later. Both exhibits will be on the main floor of the library.

Access to descriptions of manuscript and archival collections in Criss Library’s Archives & Special Collections is now available online through the ArchivesSpace application. These finding aids for collections cover a broad range of individuals, organizations, and subject matter including records from the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, personal papers of UNO dance professor Vera Lundahl, personal papers of University of Omaha founder Rev. Walter Halsey and missionary teacher Anna M. Halsey, reel-to-reel audiotape recordings of 1980s radio program Jazz Past-Times with Ed Jones, records beginning in the 1940s from the Omaha Theater Company, scrapbooks of Alpha Lambda Delta, and many more collections. Finding aids describing over 150 collections from the University Archives, Special Collections, and Arthur Paul Afghanistan Collection have already been added. Staff will continue to add finding aids for several hundred more collections on an ongoing basis along with more detailed descriptions of the most in-demand collections. To search or browse Archives & Special Collections’ finding aids visit http://l.unomaha.edu/ASCaids. Contact Archives & Special Collections at unoasc@unomaha.edu for more information or to discuss your research project.

Finally, a reception celebrating the work of Harold Chenoweth, Nebraska’s first film producer, and the donation of his film collection by the Chenoweth family to the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

American Archives Month is a collaborative effort by professional organizations and repositories around the nation to highlight the importance of records of enduring value. Archivists are professionals who assess, collect, organize, preserve, maintain control of, and provide access to information that has lasting value, and they help people find and understand the information they need in those records.

Archives & Special Collections in UNO’s Criss Library collects, preserves, and makes available to the university community and the public unique, rare, and specialized material. This includes personal papers, organizational records, books, maps, ephemera, and other material in selected subject areas including the Arthur Paul Afghanistan Collection, University Archives, U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives, and Special Collections & Rare Books. Criss Library’s Archives & Special Collections is open to the public Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
