While we work on building the Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project web portal, we want to give you a preview of what it will look like. Below are some screenshots of parts of the portal- it's not the whole thing and it's not completely finished yet, but we are excited and want to share our progress with you. Our goal for the web portal is to provide a rich source of contextual information about the digital objects that will be available online and the materials that are available for use in the Special Collections reading room. Archival collections are grouped together based on provenance, or who created the materials; in the web portal we will provide biographical information about collection donors, oral history interviewees, and other members of the local Jewish community. We also hope to illuminate the connections between individual collections by identifying themes that we have noticed as we work with these materials and hear people's stories.
