About Special Collections

The UNLV University Libraries Special Collections Division engages researchers world-wide in the interdisciplinary study of our region.  We promote learning, discovery, and scholarship about Las Vegas, Southern Nevada, and gaming. We ensure the preservation of our region's heritage and expertly help researchers use our collections. We also serve as UNLV's University Archives.

Graduate students from the Politecnico di Torino (Turin, Italy) conduct research in UNLV Special Collections for "Re-Living Las Vegas" a virtual recreation of the Sands Hotel and Casino using archival materials drawn from the Sands Hotel Collection. UNLV Professor Dan Cook and Librarian Su Kim Chung assist.
