Visual Arts Books Move into the Link

In July, a new visual arts collection space in Love Library’s Link will begin to take shape with the move of art and photography books (N-NX & TR) into the area. Circulating books will be interfiled with bound journals and reference books.  Wide aisles between the stacks allow for greater accessibility.

Large tables will be in the area to touch down and spread out. Other great items in the area include scanners, computer lab and a light table.  Don’t forget expert assistance is nearby if you have any questions. Just AskUs!

This is the first big collection move of several moves planned over the summer. Any time you need a book and can’t find it, AskUS (

Love South Service Desk moves to Love North during renovation

Starting on Monday, July 7, the main library service desk will move temporarily to the North entrance during the renovation of the Love South circulation desk. The goal of the project is to create a more inviting service point where patrons can get all types of additional services beyond checking out or returning a book.  Receiving research assistance will be a major addition to the services provided.

During the renovation, services normally offered at that Love South desk will be moved to the circulation desk at the Love North entrance.  This includes: Uniprint, Interlibrary loan book pickup, Reserves, checkout and return books, etc. At the Love South entrance only books can still be checked out.

Exhibit on Danish Immigrant Children on display in Love Library

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries is excited to announce that the exhibit, “Danish Children Growing up American,” will be on display in Love Library starting on June 25 and running until July 31. 

This exhibit, which will be located in Room 218 of Love South, features 50 large photos that depict different aspects of a child’s life in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  According to the exhibit brochure, Danish immigrants placed a lot of emphasis on their children, who they saw as the true beneficiaries of the American dream and a better life.

“Danish Children Growing up American” is on loan from the Danish American Archive and Library (DAAL) located in Blair, Nebraska, which developed this exhibit in partnership with the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). 

This exhibit will be available to see during the hours Love Library is open.  For more information on hours, visit:

Deards, Graybill Publish Work

Kiyomi Deards, Assistant Professor and Science Librarian at University Libraries and Jolie Graybill, Associate Professor at University Libraries, contributed in the writing and editing of the book, “Succession Planning and Implementing in Libraries: Practices and Resources.”

This book provides information on the process of implementing succession planning in libraries.  It provides insight on the challenges and possibilities of a succession plan’s effect on the success of library organizations.

Deards was a co-editor of the book along with Gene R. Springs, a business librarian from Ohio State University.  Deards and Graybill worked together to write Chapter 5: The Role of Professional Protocols: Recruitment, Retention, and Service (pages 106-132).

This isn’t the first that time that we have acknowledged published works by these two library faculty members. In January, we recognized a published article in an issue of the Journal of Academic Librarianship written by Graybill.  In November 2013 we also recognized Deards’ contribution to the published report Research Data Management: Principles, Practices, and Prospects.
