Curriculum Collections

The Curriculum Department offers something for everyone, whether it’s a future teacher needing materials to help create a lesson plan, a researcher looking for juvenile literature for critical analysis, a future counselor or speech-language pathologist interested in materials that may help others, a parent or homeschooler looking for a book to read to their child or a textbook that may help their child understand a difficult topic, or just anyone looking for a good book to curl up with, movie to watch, or music to listen to. The department houses multiple collections, including the Nebraska Archive of Children’s Literature, DVDs, CDs, the PreK-12 Textbook Collection, lesson plan materials, games, kits, manipulatives, children’s magazines, and more!

University Special Collections & Archives

The University Archives are comprised of several collections of materials produced by the institution in the course of conducting its business. Materials date from as early as 1905, and include items as diverse as the deeds to the land the University occupies to the copper container used as the time capsule when the Administration Building was built. Materials are collected in all formats, including original papers and documents, publications, photographs, and audiotapes.
