The University Libraries and the UNLV Department of Art will host the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon on Wednesday, Feb. 28 from 3-7 p.m. in the Amargosa Room in Lied Library.
Join Paradise Filmworks International, the Sperling Kronberg Mack Las Vegas Holocaust Resource Center, and the UNLV Teacher Development and Resources Library for a special screening of the documentary film, No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Frank's Story at 4:30 p.m. in the Goldfield Room.
Make plans to join us Friday, March 9, at 5:30 p.m. in the Goldfield Room for Inspire the Present: Bringing History to Life. We've assembled a panel of three notable Las Vegans, who often partner with Special Collections & Archives, to discuss how they use historical materials to bring Las Vegas history to life.
The University Libraries has partnered with Scott R. Abella, assistant professor of restoration ecology in the UNLV School of Life Sciences, to showcase his research on conservation in America's national parks system in the digital exhibit space in the Leisure Reading Zone on the second floor of Lied Library.
The University Libraries are pleased to announce the launch of a new library services platform, which means a new look and feel to searching the University Libraries holdings and viewing your patron account for placing holds, renewing books, etc. The new system replaces the online library catalog and the Libraries’ Quick Search with a single interface: new Quick Search. Quick Search includes records for both library print/physical resources (physical books, CDs, etc.) as well as records for - and in many cases, streamlined full-text access to - a wide variety of licensed digital content (journal articles, e-books, databases, etc.). Advanced search algorithms will facilitate easier discovery and access of the Libraries’ content.
A new exhibit showcasing the extreme diversity of the built environment in Las Vegas is now open on the first floor of Lied Library. "BUILT: A Photographic Survey of the Built Environment of the Las Vegas Valley" features an extensive collection of photographs taken by photographer Aaron Mayes, Visual Materials Curator in Special Collections & Archives, from the Building Las Vegas project.
A new exhibit, "Unbuilt Las Vegas: Imagining Failed Dreams," highlights visions of dream Las Vegas architecture that, for one reason or another, were never built. The exhibit, on the third floor of Lied Library, is curated by Peter Michel from architectural collections housed in Special Collections and Archives.
