"Boycott! The Art of Economic Activism," a traveling poster exhibition highlighting historical boycott movements from the 1950s to the present, will be on Display August 20 - September 20 at University of Nebraska at Omaha Criss Library's Osborne Family Gallery.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha yearbook or annual went by several names, beginning as the Gateway in 1915 and then becoming the Omahan, Tomahawk, and Breakaway before ending as the Maverick in 1973-1975. Through the yearbooks themselves, the exhibit highlights the university’s response to World War II; images of the growing and changing campus, especially Arts & Sciences Hall; and changes in the content and appearance of the yearbook. The exhibit in Archives & Special Collections marks 100 years since the publication of the university's first yearbook and the free online access to UNO’s yearbook first available in 2015 from Criss Library.
The current exhibit in Archives and Special Collections has a display of Afghan Art dating from the 1st century B.C.E. to the present. Items on display reveal information on Greco-Bactrian art, contemporary art, popular art, and miniature paintings by Bihzad, a famous Afghan painter from late 15th and early 16th centuries. Also included in the display are handmade pottery works from Afghanistan, produced in Istalif, a small town north of Kabul during the mid-twentieth century.
The newest exhibit in Archives & Special Collections at Criss Library gives visitors a glimpse into the life of Chuck Hagel on the campaign trail in Nebraska in 1996 and 2002. When Hagel decided to run for U.S. Senate in 1996 he was virtually unknown to most Nebraskans. As such, Hagel needed to reach out to communities across the state if he intended to win the election. One way Hagel gained support was through local parades and events. This approach helped Hagel win the election and maintain his seat when he ran again in 2002. The photos on display provide a look into the many events, parades, and other local activities that Hagel, his family, his campaign staff, and his volunteers participated in across Nebraska to garner support for Hagel in his two runs for public office.
What is Multi-Search?
Multi-Search is a TOTALLY NEW federated search engine the Library purchased to replace the old Central Search product. Multi-Search allows you to simultaneously search multiple UNO Library databases. Multi-Search will link you directly to online resources found in multiple databases and journals. Multi-Search allows you to login to your “My Account”, create customized search groups, add items to a “session folder”, print or email “session folder” entries and do a whole lot more.
Remember though, not all UNO Library databases are included within Multi-Search.
- Use “Resource Categories” to search multiple databases within the stated subject areas.
- Use “Best Bets” to search some of the "Top 10 databases" and the library catalog at the same time.
- Limiting your search to 4 or 5 databases at a time or one subject area results in quicker response times for search results.
- Use the “Advanced Search” to assist building complex queries\boolean searching.
- Use quotes to search a phrase, e.g., “gun control”
When doing in-depth research, you will get better results by searching databases directly, as direct searches within each database allow use of thesauri and filters/limiting options.
Systematic downloading of large amounts of material in a short period of time (such as all abstracts and/or full text articles from entire journal issues) is strictly prohibited by publishers. Failure by patrons to comply with this restriction may result in the loss of access by all users to a particular resource.
