Archival collections provide information not just about the individual donor or creator of the collection, they also provide a look at other individuals and organizations that he or she was involved with, or evidence of broader historical trends or processes. For example, developer Mark Fine donated his papers to UNLV Special Collections this year, and his collection,"The Mark Fine Papers," is not just about him as an individual.
The Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project is part of UNLV Special Collections' broader mission to collect, preserve, and make available the history of Southern Nevada.
