- Japanese Culture Book Collection
In 2009, the Nippon Foundation, Tokyo selected the University of New Orleans Earl K. Long Library as a recipient of their "100 Books
for Understanding Contemporary Japan" donation program. Connie Phelps, Librarian and Chair, Services Department, wrote the successful application. The books, in English, were selected by experts with extensive knowledge of Japan and provide a basic introduction to contemporary Japan. Earl K. Long Library has gratefully received this collection, which will be used by students and faculty, especially those in the UNO-Japan summer study program.
and Special Collections
The holdings of the Louisiana and Special Collections Department encompass more than 300 manuscript collections and also include
an extensive selection of publications and other materials focused on Louisiana.
Newspaper and journal backfiles are included among our microform collections, which contain a wide variety of materials in the
microfilm, microfiche, and microprint formats.
- Multimedia Collections
The Multimedia Collection is the portion of the Library that deals with audio-visual formats, microforms, and the equipment necessary
to use these materials. It has traditionally been a full-service desk in the library, with its own staff and student workers. In the aftermath of staff losses due to Hurricane Katrina, we have folded these responsibilities into the duties of everyone working at the Public Services Desk (PSD) on the first floor. We have also changed how we access the collection. Some types of materials have
been moved to the PSD for faster service. Other formats remain secured in room 320 and are available only with the help of staff members. Still others, primarily the microforms, are open for self-service.
The Earl K. Long Library with campus participation has created ScholarWorks@UNO an "institutional repository," offering researchers
free access to scholarly works created by the faculty members and students of the University of New Orleans.
- Student Government DVD Collection
A growing collection of popular DVDs are available for checkout, and students are welcome to submit additional purchase requests
This collection is sponsored by the UNO Student Government.
