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.

Services spotlight: study rooms

McGoogan Library of Medicine has 16 study rooms available to students, faculty and staff of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine. Reservation for study rooms can be made online. A UNMC or Nebraska Medicine email address is required. Please note that the first time you reserve a room, you must verify your email address through a link sent to that address. The email will come from Evanced Solutions.

Study rooms may be reserved for up to 4 hours at a time with 1 renewal (unless the room is reserved by another person or group). You may have two active reservations within a 24-hour period. Date and time of reservation must pass before you can make another reservation.  Reservations may be made up to 2 weeks in advance.

Wi-fi is available in all of the rooms. Markers, erasers and white boards are available in each room. Additional markers and erasers are available at the AskUs Desk.

The study rooms are keyless; you are advised not to leave personal items unattended anywhere in the library. Rooms are not soundproof and are located on a quiet floor.

Services spotlight: order articles and books in McGoogan Docs

The library subscribes to thousands of journals, but sometimes you need an article from a journal that we do not have. What do you do? Try the McGoogan Docs system. You can submit article, book chapter, or book requests in an easy to use form and the interlibrary loan department will obtain it for you. Our sources include other libraries, publishers, or open access journals. We strive to provide the best copy for you, but if you are not satisfied, please let us know. Turnaround time is on average 1.5 business days. Rush is available in cases in which you have a grant deadline, an urgent patient care issue, etc. And the best part? It’s free! There were charges or limits in the past, but no more! All faculty, staff, and students at UNMC receive free service. However, if there is a copyright royalty issue, we may ask that you help with the cost, which is capped at $30.
