This year Nevada is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its statehood and our Local Arrangements Chair, Su Kim Chung, has been highlighting some of the interesting Las Vegas specific collections held at UNLV Special Collections. So, if you have ever wondered what kind of historical collections about Las Vegas are available might we suggest:
Showgirls collections: http://news.unlv.edu/article/lasting-legacy-las-vegas-showgirls
Early Las Vegas History: http://news.unlv.edu/article/my-nevada-5-libraries-treasures-early-las-vegas-history
Preconference attendees will be able to learn even more about Nevada’s history at our RBMS LV reception site, the Nevada State Museum, and more about UNLV’s collections at the UNLV Special Collections and Lied Library Open House, Friday, June 27 from 1-5pm.
