Our Library

Cedar Point Library
Gainesforth Resource Center

Located in the Gainesforth Resource Building is the Cedar Point branch of the Nebraska Library system housing a large collection of reference material including field guides, text books, and journal articles specific to the natural history of western Nebraska. It is a popular place for the students to study and work on projects with 8 to 10 tables of four and a computer alcove with two computers and a printer for the students' use which has been beautifully painted by an artist in residence with a few of her students to reflect the surrounding nature. It also functions at times as a classroom and a meeting room with a white board, a digital projector, and a pull-down screen.

It is our goal to be sure all of this material is fully cataloged and searchable online via the UNL Library Catalog. When searching for material, search normally and check the locations. If Cedar Point appears, we have it in our library. Most journals are now available online with your Nebraska Library subscription. Occasionally older journals are not available; in those cases the Library can often find a PDF version of the article and email it to you in one to two days. The CPBS Wi-Fi works as if you are still on the main campus in Lincoln, Nebraska. We have provisions to provide Wi-Fi and library access to non-UNL visitors, at no additional charge. For more information, ask any staff person at the station.
