A new exhibit celebrating the 60th anniversary of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is now open in Special Collections and Archives in Lied Library at UNLV.
“UNLV @ 60: From Tumbleweed Tech to Top Tier,” curated by Tammi Kim, Special Collections Technical Services Librarian, shows the development of the physical UNLV campus and highlights student activities and engagement, as well as popular athletics programs.
The UNLV University Libraries recently received two grants totaling $54,900 from the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial to fund digitization projects in Special Collections and Archives.
The first grant for $49,400 will fund the digitization of the Las Vegas Age, which ran from 1905-1947, and the region’s first newspaper, the Las Vegas Times, which ran from 1905-1906. The grant will be used to create an online, searchable versions of the two newspapers through the University Libraries website.
