Explanation of Research & Tech Park Borrower Privileges

Welcome to the library!

To ensure that you are able to checkout materials when you come, please pick up your UNO picture ID. "Research and Technology Park" will be shown on the ID with a date. An ID can be obtained at the University Computer Center, room 112. The expiration date will always be the last day of June each year - you will need to renew your account annually each June.

When renewing your library account, or first setting up your library account, you will need to come to the library's Circulation Desk on the first floor. Please ask for a staff member. We will ask that you fill out a brief form requesting your home and business address, agency or department affiliation, email address and phone number for us to enter into the library’s database. If you are renewing an account, we will need to verify this information from your existing account.

Library privileges include:

  • Checking out a maximumof 120 books for three weeks
  • Unlimited renewals for an additional three weeks at a time
  • Checking out journals for three hours

Electronic materials, including e-journals, e-books, and subscription databases, are available in the library, but not from off campus.

Books can be renewed online up until the day before they are due by going to home page, click on "My Library Account" to review the items you have checked out or renew your materials. The new due date will be listed on the screen. Double check the dates on all materials. Feel free to write the new due date on the stamped slip in the front cover of the book. Use your UNO ID number (a 7 digit number) plus 2 zeros at the end of the number (for example: 123456700) to log into your account. You can have your library PIN emailed to you by clicking "Email My PIN" and entering your UNO ID with 00 at the end. There are two exceptions to being able to renew online:

  • If you have overdue items or owe money for fines
  • If a hold has been placed on the item you are trying to renew

For overdue books, fines are incurred at $0.20 per book per day. For overdue journals, fines accrue at $0.50 per hour. If library materials are lost, there will be a lost book charge and a processing fee, plus any fines. You will be personally responsible for paying fines and lost book charges. Payment may be made in cash or by personal check made out to the UNO Library.
