The various colleges on the UNMC campus issued a number of different yearbooks during many years of the 20th century. The College of Medicine published the “Caduceus” yearbook (see full image below) in 1929 and 1930, as well as the “Scope” which focused on the class of 1948. From 1951 through 1957 the College of Nursing (then the School of Nursing) published a yearbook called “Starch & Stripes.” The College of Pharmacy published its own yearbook from 1913-1920, while still located on the UNL city campus in Lincoln.
The library’s collections also house various years of the UNL “Cornhusker” yearbook from 1899 through 1968, which contain sections on the schools and/or Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Dentistry.
Haythorn Branding '96

If you don’t have time to visit the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. or even to take a trip to the Durham Museum, you can still satisfy your creative side by wandering around the McGoogan Library. Many of the same photographs that are on exhibit at the Library of Congress and at the Durham can also be found on permanent display at our Library. Dr. Charles W. Guildner, who graduated from UNMC in 1957, donated photographs from his “Lives of Tradition” collection to the Library. Dr. Guildner took up photography after he retired as an anesthesiologist.
The photographs, focusing on rural Nebraska, ranches in the Midwest, and the people who live and work there, are displayed on walls and in study rooms throughout both the 6th and 7th floors of the Library. Although the photographs are contemporary—they were taken over a seventeen year period, starting in 1990—they have a timeless and almost antiquated feel. The black and white images of unspoilt farming landscapes, showcasing people who still rely on ranching techniques that have changed little over the past two centuries, show little of the bustle of modern life and technological dependency found in the city. Instead, you will see timeless blizzards, farming using “six-abreast” horse teams, and men and women working at the hand-hewn ranch buildings built generations ago by their families.
On his website (www.guildner-photo.com), Dr. Guildner says he focused on “finding and recording people who are living and working in characteristic ways that have changed little since the settling of the heartland of this country.”
Each of the photographs on display in the Library are accompanied by an interpretive plaque where Dr. Guildner explains the scenes, the humble people, and his impetus for taking the photographs.
If the photographs on display in the Library whet your appetite to see more, you can visit the Durham Museum in downtown Omaha. There, you will find more photographs in the South Gallery, as well as donated camera equipment. Just take your UNMC ID card with you, as admittance for UNMC students, staff, and faculty is free thanks to a partnership between UNMC and the Museum.
The McGoogan Library owns or provides access to a growing collection of ebooks in the health sciences. In most cases, the library will not purchase the print version of books for which we have electronic access. We offer many ways of using and viewing our ebooks. If you know the title, ISBN, publisher, or vendor of an ebook, you can search for it directly in our Ebook A-Z list.
Ebooks are generally only available via the web interface, not devices such as Kindles. Some publishers and vendors do provide specific apps for viewing content from a mobile device. You can view a table of these options and more from our ebook library guide.
Access to PDFs also vary and sometimes require a personal logon, such as in the case of Clinical Key. If you have any questions or have problem with our ebooks please contact the AskUs desk at 402-559-6221 or email@example.com.
