This blog will also provide updates and information regarding CONTENTdm development and implementation. Currently, there are two major digital collections in production. The Showgirls project focuses on historic materials relating to Las Vegas showgirls and features scanned digital images of original costume design sketches and photographic prints. The Nevada Test SIte Oral History Project is being created in conjunction with the UNLV Department of History and consists of oral history interview transcripts and digital audio. The digitized content has been collected to create a much-needed research collection on the Nevada Test Site.
