Welcome to the Ella Johnson Crandall Memorial Library in the Don Love Building on the campus of Union College. Whether you are a student, faculty member, or community member, our friendly staff is waiting to assist you in your academic and research pursuits.  

Mission Statement

The library leads the Union College campus in the utilization of information resources, preservation of institutional heritage, and serves students, faculty, staff, and community members in their intellectual and spiritual growth.


We are proud of our beautiful facility in which we provide access to electronic resources and print materials, including online databases, books, periodicals, ebooks, DVDs, videos, audiobooks, and more. Union College is a member of the Nebraska Independent College Library Consortium and our library catalog shows the holdings of all ten NICLC colleges and universities. We also provide space for individual and group study, as well as for computing and viewing audiovisual material.  We support the teaching, learning and research objectives of Union College through individualized research appointments, reference assistance and classroom instruction.

We wish you God's blessing as you develop your intellectual potential at Union College.
