What are the Friends?
“The Friends of the McGoogan Library are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the level of services for all of our users, understanding that, without supplemental funds, even the basics are difficult to sustain.” —–Leon S. McGoogan, M.D. (1900-1993)
Friends of the McGoogan Library of Medicine share a belief that the library is the heart of the educational, research and clinical accomplishments at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Started as an informal group in 1979 by Dr. Leon S. McGoogan, whose generous spirit was matched only by his commitment to excellence, the Friends group provides the extra support required to keep up with the complex demands on the library.
