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.
Dual Enrollment Program Services
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.
For more information on the the library's involvement in the dual enrollment program, please contact the Criss Library Dual Enrollment Coordinator at 402-554-3638 or via email. More information on the dual enrollment program, library Subject Librarians, and helpful resources can be found on the Criss Library Dual Enrollment Guide.
