Nebraska Memories

Nebraska Memories, a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them freely available to researchers of all ages via the Internet, is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. Nebraska Memories houses digital collections created by Nebraska libraries, either alone or in partnership with other Nebraska cultural heritage institutions such as museums and historical societies.

The database currently contains approximately 5,500+ digitized items and continues to grow each month. Thirty-four Nebraska institutions are currently participating in the project. The content helps to document the rich history of Nebraska and its residents. At this time searchers can find material from the 1890s to the 1970s in Nebraska Memories.

The digital collection of items in the Nebraska Memories database contains photographs, documents, artifacts, papers, manuscripts, maps and audio files. Genealogical resources are not included.
