The UNLV University Libraries is continually seeking relevant stories and collections about the Jewish experience in Southern Nevada.

SHARE YOUR LIFE STORY:

Volunteer yourself or nominate a person to be interviewed for an oral history.  An oral history allows future generations to hear and read your story in your own words. Contact the Project Coordinator, Barbara Tabach at (702) 895-2222 or special.collections@unlv.edu.

DONATE YOUR PERSONAL, FAMILY, OR ORGANIZATIONAL ARCHIVES:

Donate your historical records to ensure your work and experiences are preserved and available for future generations to remember, study, and appreciate. Your significant historical materials will be preserved in a secure facility and will be made available for the general public to use in Special Collections at the UNLV Libraries. Expert staff will organize, preserve, and describe your materials. Highlights from your donation will be digitized for addition to this web portal. Contact us to learn more about the kinds of materials we are interested in, or read about our collecting and scanning guidelines.

HOST A PRESENTATION OR SCANNING DAY:

We are eager to share more about the project and are available to give presentations to groups.We can also facilitate a personal archiving day where community members come to a designated location to learn more about this project and scan selected personal materials. Participants receive digital copies and may contribute their memories to the project. Contact the Project Coordinator, Barbara Tabach at (702) 895-2222 or special.collections@unlv.edu.
