NURAMP e-Learning Library

Each of these e-modules addresses a specific topic related to research administration at UNL. While the e-modules provide a clear overview of these topics, we encourage you to also participate in the NURAMP workshops to learn more details about policies, guidelines, procedures and resources related to each. Some of these e-modules are recommended as supplements to the sessions in the NURAMP workshop series.

More e-modules will be added as they are developed. If you have questions about the information presented here, please contact Laurie Sampson at 402-472-3136 or

NOTE: Some e-modules may take a moment to load. Thanks for your patience.
