We're excited to be celebrating 50 years of documenting the history of Las Vegas, Southern Nevada, gaming, and UNLV! You are invited to attend our campus celebration to commemorate 50 years of Special Collections and Archives on Thursday, November 16 at 2:30 p.m. in the Lied Library lobby. We will have remarks from University Libraries Dean Maggie Farrell, Senior Vice Provost Carl Reiber, and Director of Special Collections and Archives Michelle Light. We'll be serving special 50th anniversary cupcakes and inviting everyone to explore our 50 Treasures for 50 Years exhibit.

The 50 Treasures for 50 Years exhibit features 50 distinct items that represent a broad swath of our collections and collecting areas. It features thematic cases on gaming, entertainment, early Las Vegas, mining, notable Southern Nevada women, and much more. Read more about the exhibit on our 50 Treasures exhibit blog post, and look at the colorful exhibit catalog that features highlights from the exhibit.
