Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “The Queer Omaha Archives”, on Wednesday, July 27, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
The Queer Omaha Archives, in Criss Library Archives & Special Collections at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, preserves and provides access to the history of LGBTQIA+ life in the region. The archives collects, preserves, and makes available to the public material documenting the diverse people and organizations of the greater Omaha region and their experiences and work. In this session, we’ll share how this new community collecting initiative was begun and how the library is extending existing and establishing new relationships with campus and community members to preserve the region’s LGBTQIA+ history and make it available for use.
Presenter: Amy Schindler, Director of Archives & Special Collections, Criss Library, University of Nebraska at Omaha.
