Criss Library provides access to many resources especially helpful to online and distance education students, including:​

  • Over 200 databases, many containing full-text articles;
  • Over 500,000 electronic books, historical newspapers and government documents;
  • Audio and video streaming services;
  • Materials put on e-reserves for your courses;
  • Subject-specific research guides and citation guides;
  • Phone or video research consultations available with subject librarians.



To use these resources, you must be a currently-enrolled UNO student and have a library account (see instructions below to set up your account and password).

Create Your Library Login

You no longer need to create a library account. Log in with the same username and password that you use for Canvas. To access your library account, click on "My Account" on the library's homepage, or follow the link below.


Please note, your Interlibrary Loan (ILL) account is separate from your library account. You will need to create an ILL account in order to request materials. Use the link below to create an ILL account.


If you have any questions or issues regarding your library account or ILL account, please call the Service Desk at 402-554-3206.
