The Women’s Archive Project (WAP) is a student-produced, multimedia archive that combines traditional library archives and lived history with the interactivity and public access of the internet.

Students enrolled in the “Researching and Writing Women’s Lives” course, or working as Interns for the Project, cull through UNO yearbooks, The Gateway newspaper, alumni lists, archival boxes, and historical archives as well as talk to faculty, family, and community members to identify a UNO woman, alive or deceased, “famous” or “ordinary,” who they would like to profile on the WAP website.
