UNLV University Libraries’ Special Collections Facebook page recently reached over 1,000 likes! In addition to promoting events, exhibits, and projects sponsored by Special Collections, it frequently highlights unique items from the collections that mark special dates in Las Vegas history (such as the dedication of Hoover Dam, the premiere of Casino de Paris, and snow in Las Vegas) or pertain to thematic social media days (for example, #nationaldogday and #GivingTuesday).
Two recent Facebook posts that garnered shares and likes.
This fun and eclectic mix of content has made it a popular destination for Las Vegas history aficionados, as well as more traditional researchers interested in the most current scholarship on Las Vegas, southern Nevada, and gaming. All of the items we feature link back to our digital collections and provide information on how you can explore additional material in our collections virtually or in person in Lied Library.
