Library Account PINS

Beginning fall 2017, the McGoogan Library of Medicine is enabling patrons to view their accounts online.  When you look up items in the library’s catalog, there is a Login button in the upper right hand corner.  If you have checked out library item(s) previously, contact askus@unmc.edu or 402-559-4006 and request a PIN.

Once you have a PIN, you can view items you have checked out and request a renewal of your item(s).

Please note: If you have never checked out an item from the library, you will need to come in person with your UNMC photo ID. We will create an account for you.

If you have any questions, please contact askus@unmc.edu or call 402-559-4006.

Try out sample furniture in the library

During the Fall 2017 semester, McGoogan Library will be testing new furniture options in preparation for our upcoming renovation. The first round of furniture will be available August through September, with a second round October through December. Visit the library at Wittson Hall sixth floor south and let us know your preferences. Your feedback will help shape the future look of the library. Cards are available for your comments.
