The Earl K. Long Library is open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday during the regular fall and spring semesters. UNO students, faculty, and staff (the Library’s primary users) are welcome and encouraged to find a perfect spot to sit down and do serious research and study any time of the day or night.

Beginning fall 2018, access to the building “after hours” Sunday through Thursday will require a UNO ID and PIN.

All Library Users

All library users are expected to follow all Library policies including the Library Code of Conduct UNO students must also follow the Student Code of Conduct.


The UNO Library is committed to providing access to the public and encourages lifelong learning. Members of the public are welcome to access the Library during all regular library hours. During the regular semesters when 24 hour access is offered, late night hours are limited to the UNO Community. These hours begin 11 pm Sunday through Thursday.
