Currently, the library is only accessible to UNMC students, faculty, and staff and Nebraska Medicine staff. The library is open 24/7 and is staffed Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Students can use the library when they have a break between classes and need a place for studying or if their home environment is not conducive to studying. In accordance with campus expectations, students should not come to campus solely for studying unless it falls within these areas.
