Our manuscript holdings, which focus on Nevada and the West, consist of over 3000 collections, ranging in size from a single folder to several hundred cubic feet. The bulk of the materials date from the 1850s to the present.
We are hoping that by 2014, we will have a new website and will be able to post these lists online.
Included are personal papers, topical collections, records of businesses, churches, local governments and schools, as well as civic, educational, charitable, professional, labor and social organizations. All collections have brief guide descriptions; individual registers or indexes are available for the larger collections.
The Library is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12-4 p.m.
The Society has been working on compiling lists of our Manuscript collections that will be placed on our website within the upcoming year.If you would like to find out what collections the Society has available, please try the beta ArchiveGrid system from OCLC Research.
