A new online exhibition from the University of Nebraska Consortium of Libraries is celebrating the successful merger of the University of Nebraska system institutions.
“All Together Now: The 50th Anniversary of the University of Nebraska System Merger, 1968-2018” is the first collaborative exhibit curated by archivists and librarians from across the University of Nebraska system.
“This exhibit provides a great opportunity to discover more about our collections and collaborate with peers across campuses. It provides a valuable way to showcase one aspect of archival work,” said Mary Ellen Ducey, university archivist and special collections librarian at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “It also demonstrates how important it is for archives to capture stories about the university as they happen, so our view in the future includes both the official record and the experience of those who lived through it.”
The University of Nebraska Consortium of Libraries leads each organization in preserving the unique history of the NU system, offering specialized collections that support the research needs of each campus.
“Each university within the system has different strengths and specialties, allowing the University of Nebraska system to fill more educational niches within Nebraska than any of the campuses could support alone,” said Angela Kroeger, metadata coordinator at University of Nebraska at Omaha.
