The Library/Archives collects records from federal agencies that relate to Nebraska history. The subject areas represented in these records include agriculture, economic development, military history, judicial matters, natural resources, surveys, Works Projects Administration, post offices, land, Indian affairs, census, and immigration.
Most of the records are duplicates of original material stored at the National Archives and are available on microfilm in the Library/Archives reference room. These are not available from us through interlibrary loan. The Library/Archives also possesses original records from federal agencies such as the U.S. General Land Office and the Works Projects Administration, among others. For more information on archives holdings or to order a search for a specific record, contact the Library Archives Reference Staff.
