UNO Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections celebrates the appreciation of the past and understanding of the present made possible through access to and use of unique and rare collections in the new exhibit Recent Acquisitions: Building the Good Life. The items on display in Archives & Special Collections represent the variety of formats and diverse subjects of recent acquisitions by Archives & Special Collections.
Visitors can view late 19th century stereocards, a mid-20th century scrapbook, a bag telephone from the 1990s, artists’ books, films, and other new acquisitions as they learn about the ever-growing Archives & Special Collections. The display includes something for everyone including memorabilia from UNO sports teams, the records of Nebraska AIDS Project, letters from a Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan, issues of The New Voice of Nebraska, material documenting Dance at UNO, and more.
The department continuously adds new material to its collections through generous gifts as well as purchases. Contact the Director of Archives & Special Collections if you would like to discuss a potential donation or suggest material for potential purchase.
