  • Nevada Women’s Archive

    Founded in 1994 as a means to preserve the text and photographic documentation detailing women’s activities in the development of Nevada, the Nevada Women’s Archives currently houses more than 250 collections and is located within the Special Collections Department of the Lied Library at UNLV.

    As part of the Special Collections of UNLV Libraries, the Nevada Women’s Archives project began in September 1994 to collect, preserve, and provide access to primary source materials documenting women’s history in Southern Nevada. Materials resulting from women’s activities in political, social, cultural, religious, commercial and economic life are the focus of the collection.

    The Archives collection includes legal papers, business and personal correspondence, family memorabilia, and family photo albums. Once collections are processed and cataloged, information is accessible through the library’s catalog and through the World Wide Web to researchers not only in the community but also internationally.
