Nebraska State Historical Records Advisory Board

The Nebraska State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is a state board, appointed by the governor, under the authority of federal statutes and regulations governing the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) program of the National Archives and Records Administration. The director of the Nebraska State Historical Society and the state archivist are permanent board members. At least eleven other members are appointed by the governor for three-year, renewable terms.

The Nebraska SHRAB members represent a variety of constituencies--members have included a county historical society director, a high school teacher, history professors, the director of Nebraska's Records Management Division, and a humanities scholar--and also reflect a geographical balance with representation from all three of the state's congressional districts.

The SHRAB provides leadership in encouraging, promoting, and assisting the advancement of programs to preserve and make accessible historical records in Nebraska. As the central advisory body for historical records planning, the board's role is to investigate and report on the conditions and needs of historical records in Nebraska; to determine state priorities for historical records projects based upon NHPRC guidelines and record conditions and needs; to solicit, foster, and develop proposals for NHPRC projects to be carried out within the state; and to review grant proposals submitted by Nebraska institutions and make recommendations to NHPRC based upon their merit.
