Materials from outside the Libraries, including the Reno/Sparks area and beyond
About our partnerships
These projects are born from our mission to transform creative ideas and information into initiatives that preserve collections that fall outside the Libraries' walls. Our partners range from museums on campus to community organizations and local government agencies.

The materials range from 1855 to 1964, covering the time from when Nevada was part of Utah Territory, then became the Territory of Nevada, and later became a state.
