UNO Criss Library announces the release of an online series of instructional videos centered on Civic and Information Literacies located on the UNO Libraries YouTube page.
This video series is partially funded by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The videos are hosted on the UNO Libraries YouTube page and will be marketed at no cost to teachers in OPS, LPS, Gretna, and other surrounding area districts and schools as a supplement to their current curriculums. The videos are approximately 30-45 minutes long, and all include a lecture/lesson and an activity prompt. The videos were filmed and edited in the Creative Production Lab by Charles Fisher at Criss Library. New videos will be added for a more in-depth exploration of civic literacy and engagement.
The Civic and Information Literacies Video Series is one of many programs funded by Humanities Nebraska (HN) grants. HN awards more than $257,000 in grants each year.
Created in 1973 as a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Humanities Nebraska (HN) is an independent; non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of public and academic members. Humanities Nebraska funds programs that explore Nebraska's heritage, build community awareness and strengthen our ties to cultural traditions at home and abroad.
The Nebraska Cultural Endowment is a public/private partnership that designates funds to HN for distribution.
Any non-profit group is eligible to apply for a grant from HN. The HN staff is available for grant consultation and will read proposal drafts. Contact the HN office if you need assistance with a project idea.
