Writing Center back on campus August 22

The Writing Center@UNMC will return to campus on August 22. The center is staffed by the UNO Writing Center on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m.

Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to work with a writing consultant on any writing project. This free service is appropriate for writing assignments, application essays, business letters, or other projects. Please see The Writing Center site for more information and to book an appointment. Distance appointments are also available. The Writing Center@UNMC is sponsored by Academic Affairs.

Interlibrary Loan logon procedures to change

Beginning February 16, the library’s Interlibrary Loan system will be connected to the UNMC Net ID service. UNMC.edu users will be able to log in to their Interlibrary Loan accounts with their UNMC username and password. This change is being made to improve security and ease of access.

  • Current UNMC users who have a username that was not their UNMC Net ID username will have their accounts converted to their UNMC username. Files and history will remain available.
  • Current UNMC users whose Interlibrary Loan username is their UNMC Net ID username will now use their Net ID password.
  • All new UNMC users can simply log in to the system with their UNMC Net ID and password to begin the registration process.
  • If you are ordering for someone else and that proxy account is no longer accessible to you, please create a new account, but do not use the person’s UNMC username. A suggested username would be “proxyjohndoe.”
  • If you do not have a UNMC email account, such as Nebraska Medicine or Children’s Hospital, any existing logon information remains unchanged.

If you have questions or issues, please email illdept@unmc.edu or call 402-559-7085.

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.
