    The Library has a large collection of curriculum related music CDs (over 2,800) and movie DVDs (over 900) available for checkout.

  • The Library uses Delicious to help organize the web. We accumulate bookmarks of quality sites available in subject areas of interest
    for the campus.
  • E-Journals
    The Earl K. Long Library maintains over 12,000 current periodical subscriptions, many of which are available as electronic journals.

  • Federal and State Documents
    The library is a 90% selective depository for federal government information and is one of eight complete depositories for
    Louisiana state documents.
  • The Library has a flickr account for photos and library displays.

  • 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.


  • Louisiana 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.

  • Microform Research Collections
    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 Circulation Desk 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.
  • ScholarWorks@UNO
    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.
