Library Website Redesign

The library site will soon have a new look.  In compliance with the updated campus web design, the new library site has a cleaner appearance and more streamlined navigation.  Some items to note:

  • The site is responsive and optimized for mobile browsers.  This means that the lists of convenient links on the old site had to be eliminated since they are not easily readable on smaller screens.
  • All of the content from the old site is still available.  Check out our clickable pathfinder to see where old links map to new.
  • The design for the new site is consistent with all UNMC sites across campus and has gone through extensive review by Public Relations.

Thanks for your patience as we make this transition. We hope that the new site will soon become an old friend to you in all of your scholarly activities.
