Remote Access

On campus, anyone can access UNO databases. Off campus, you will be prompted to sign into your library account. When prompted for your NU ID number, you will use the 8-digit number given to you PLUS ‘de’ at the end: 12345678de. If you are a Dual Enrollment instructor, you do NOT put ‘de’ at the end of your NU ID number. If you do not know your NU ID, contact Dual Enrollment at (402) 554-3810 or To set up your library account, click here.

If you are having problems setting up the password to your library account, contact Karen at 402-554-6025 or

Librarian Faculty Status and Training

Librarians at high schools that participate in the Dual Enrollment Program through UNO may apply for faculty status.
