Where can I find books… in the library?

The library has books in many locations. This blog article can help you with these locations. You can always stop at the Ask Us Desk for directions.

With the McGoogan Library spread over three floors, it can be difficult to find what you need in an unfamiliar library. Here’s a mini-tour to help you out.

Sixth Floor

This catalog says this book is located on Reserve: Reserve items are located at the Ask Us Desk. They can be used inside the library only, and only for 2 hours at a time. These are books placed for course reserves by your professors.

Isn’t that the same thing as Reference?: Reference books include the newest human atlases, the OED, Directory of Physicians, and drug facts books. They’re located just across from the Ask Us Desk on the wooden shelves. Reference books cannot leave the library, but at least you know they are always here when you need them!

What about Review Books?: We have an entire section of review books to help you study for exams and rotations (ie: USMLE, Step 2, Psychiatry), from different publishers: Pearls of Wisdom, Lange, First Aid, Case Files, Pre-Test, NMS, BRS, and many more. Review and Residency Books are located in the same wooden shelving area as the Reference books. These books are popular, so they can only be checked out for 1 week at a time with 1 renewal.

How about New Books?: New books stay on display for 2 weeks, just to let people know what’s new!

Seventh Floor

When are books located in the Books?: Older books or books not needed for specific courses are located in our regular collection (handily called “Books” in the online catalog). These can be checked out for 2 weeks with 2 renewals.

Didn’t the Journals used to be split alphabetically?: Yes, but now our journals are all located on the 7th floor. They’re still shelved alphabetically by journal title, though.

I’m looking for a UNMC Thesis or Dissertation: Hard-copy theses are located at the top of the stairs, right in front of the Journals.

Eighth Floor

I need a really old thesis, or a really, really old book: You’ll need to make an appointment to get into our Archives (402-559-7094). We have theses going back to the early 1900s, we have a History of Medicine area carrying books too fragile for the shelves, and we also have two Rare Book Rooms with items published during the last several hundred years. These items can be viewed on-site only. More information is available here.

Summer reading “sale” at the library

By Dawn Wilson

The school year is almost over, and for some, that means finally, a little time to relax! Whether you’re planning to spend a few days at the beach, or take a long flight overseas, you’re going to need a good book to take with you. We’ve got you covered! Just visit our leisure reading “sale” and browse literary, sci-fi/fantasy, romance, non-fiction, children’s books, picture books, cookbooks, memoirs, magazines, and even some DVDs and CDs.

The McGoogan Library uses the “sale” to raise money for Fontenelle Elementary School. They’re our adopted school library, located in north Omaha, and every year, we buy exciting brand-new books to fill their library.

The sale will start April 6 and run six weeks, through the end of the semester. It’s located on the 6th floor, near the Ask Us desk.

If you have donations that you have found lingering under beds during spring cleaning, by all means, bring them up! We will continue to take donations throughout the sale.

Book “sales” are by donation only.
