The computer cluster on the eighth floor of the library will close on September 30th. It will be converted into the temporary home of a developing UNMC Center for e-Learning. Here faculty and their collaborators (including interested students) will be provided with the tools necessary to begin creating new e-Learning materials.
The computer cluster on the 6th floor will remain. Five computers will be added to the cluster, making for 11 workstations. The additional computers will be added in the next few weeks. In addition to these 11 computers, the library also has 16 public computers that can be used by faculty, staff and students for a total of 27 computers on the 6th Floor. Note: These 16 computers are connected to a printer, but if you print, there is a charge.
All other campus computer clusters will continue to be available.
An event will be taking place on the 6th floor of the library on Wednesday June 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. It is recommended that all studying take place on the 7th or 8th floors.
Update: The library training room is now available through December 2012. Please contact Teri Hartman (email@example.com) with your reservation request.
We have been informed that beginning Sept 1, 2012 the Library/ITS training rooms must close due to a major construction project. We are not able to accept or create any reservations past that time. We regret this turn of events and apologize for the inconvenience this creates.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience the room closings cause.
If you are welcoming new employees, visiting scholars or summer researchers, please contact Teri Hartman at the McGoogan Library for a tour of the facility and the information resources available to anyone using a UNMC networked computer. You can request a tour by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 9-7075. Tour length can be adjusted to fit the amount of time you have available, but are generally 20 minutes.
Wi-Fi access on the 6th and 7th floors of the library is now stronger and covers a much larger area, including the corners and study rooms. A good to excellent signal is present throughout these floors, though the signal does lower at times when you are in certain spots within the actual stacks.
The terms of service and disclaimer still must be accepted (by opening an Internet browser and clicking the Accept button) before access is granted.
A big thank you to UNMC ITS!
Not in the library, but want to know if a study room is available? Now you can check availability through the library’s mobile website.
The site takes you to a live listing of study room keys in our catalog. If a study room is available, it will be indicated as “Available” in the Call# column.
Please note that there is no guarantee of availability or access to a specific room. This page is live and a room may not be available by the time you arrive in the library and “due date” times may not indicate future availability, as rooms can be renewed.
Rooms are only available to UNMC faculty, students, and staff.
The elevators in Wittson Hall, which serve the library, will be down for a scheduled inspection from approximately 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 5. Additionally, the library elevator that serves floors 6 through 8 will also be down.
Anyone unable to use the stairs and needing elevator service to the library during this time will need to call the library circulation desk (559-4006) or Security Dispatch (559-5111) for an escorted elevator ride.
We apologize for this inconvenience.
