Books are printed in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of the reader and the interests of the publisher. The small books in this display can provide a window into both, from the daily prayer book small enough for one’s pocket to the artist’s book utilizing a concertina style. The small and miniature books displayed date from 1685 to 2010 and include travel guides, individual titles from large sets, as well as small press and artists’ books. A few of the books are small enough to qualify as miniature books, that is, books smaller than 3 inches in size. The slip cases of selected titles are also displayed in Archives & Special Collections.

   

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.

Dual Enrollment Program Services

Overview

The Dual Enrollment program is a cooperative venture between UNO and metropolitan area high schools. In selected schools, students in Advanced Placement classes may choose to receive college credit by registering at UNO and paying a fee. High school Dual Enrollment faculty members are considered to be UNO adjunct faculty and will have regular faculty privileges at the library.

Library Accounts and Resource Access

A library account is automatically created for students and faculty based upon their active status.

Students and faculty will be provided their NU ID number from the Registrar's office by mail. If a student or faculty member loses their NU ID number, they must contact the Registrar's office in person with a valid ID to be able to get a replacement. The library cannot provide students or faculty with the NU ID number.

Materials Checkout and Resource Access Information

Dual-enrollment students and faculty are not issued university identification cards, and therefore must visit the Main Service Desk to obtain a “red” library card in order to check out materials.

Dual enrollment students may check out up to 50 items.
