Historical Research

This guide aims to help UNO students identify historical resources available in Criss Library and via Criss Library databases.

Interlibrary Loan

You may identify books or other publications not available at Criss Library.  If so, the library's Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery service can often borrow or obtain a copy from another library.   Some items are difficult to find and require weeks to obtain, so submit requests as soon as possible.

Search the library catalog to find books

The Criss Library catalog contains records describing the books, ebooks, government documents, videos, music scores, CDs, and other materials owned by the library.

Stay alert for clues which indicate that a book contains primary sources; for example, it may contain a diary, a compilation of personal letters, or a collection of official documents.

The library's collection of ebooks now tops over 400,000.  You may click here to find instructions for viewing and downloading ebooks.
