What can we do for Nebraska State Employees?

The Nebraska Library Commission maintains a collection of general reference materials and provides research services to all Nebraska State Employees. Our collection includes books, periodicals and videos as well as electronic resources. The collection also includes Nebraska state and federal government documents. Most items are available for loan. Reference staff are available to take questions via phone at 800-307-2665 (Nebraska only) or 402-471-4016 Monday-Friday 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. Central Standard Time.

Staff may also be reached by fax: 402-471-6244 or by e-mail, or chat during the hours we're open for help with questions or other assistance.

Information Services include:

  • Research Services:
    Nebraska State Employees may call upon our research staff to provide information needed for work related projects.
