The 2012 Nevada Archives Month theme is Surveying Nevada. One of the initial steps Nevada took toward becoming a state was having its boundaries surveyed. These survey maps have been scanned and are available on the University of Nevada, Reno website.
Nevada Archives Month 2012 provides an opportunity to study our history through the original documents preserved and protected by our state repositories. These locations include the archives and special collections departments of the University of Nevada at Reno and Las Vegas, the Nevada Historical Society in Reno, the Cahlan Research Library in Las Vegas, and the Nevada State Archives in Carson City. Learn more about each of these locations by visiting their websites.
