If you have personal or organizational collections of historical material, UNO Libraries' Archives and Special Collections is a potential archival repository for this material. Contact Amy Schindler, Director of Archives and Special Collections, to discuss a potential donation. Thinking about scanning your collection before donating it to an archival repository? Talk with the archivists, librarians, or museum curator before you begin your project.
General reminders: wearing cotton gloves is for handling photos and memorabilia, not (easy to tear) paper; you do not need to keep many multiple of documents, brochures, photos, etc.; focus your time and preservation energy on unique material, like photos and documents, rather than things you can get copies of, such as newspaper clippings. Removing paper clips, staples, and similar fasteners along with rubberbands is generally a good idea when your time and resources allow.
