Check study room availability on-the-go

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.

Binding cost of dissertations and theses to increase

Effective January 1, 2011, the cost for binding dissertations and theses will increase from $10 per copy to $15 per copy. Houchen Bindery will begin billing all customers for stamping the title and author information on the front cover. Because thesis and dissertation titles include custom text and are often long, cover preparation is expensive for the bindery. Unfortunately, neither the bindery nor the library is able to absorb the added cost and as a result, the increase must be passed on to the student author. For questions, please contact Sheryl Williams (swilliam@unmc.edu).
