Giving to the Library

As we enter a new era with massive shifts in how, where, and when people use library services, the McGoogan Health Sciences Library aspires to exceed University of Nebraska Medical Center community expectations by creating a virtual and physical space that enhances learning, encourages innovation, provides technology for users in a meaningful way, and demonstrates that we are an academic research library of the future.

The library can and should continue to be the place where people go to learn how to learn. The services provided to students, faculty, staff, and public – online and in person – are beyond value. They are paramount; especially in competitive, serious, and effective academic institutions. - UNMC student, 2016 

We invite you to contribute to our vision of becoming a library of the future.
