Collecting Strengths

Special Collections documents the history of gaming, Las Vegas and southern Nevada. Our gaming collection of books, periodicals, manuscript collections, photographs, prints, and more is internationally known for its depth and breadth. Our collections on Las Vegas and southern Nevada are wide-ranging and focus on Las Vegas as both a community and a tourist destination and the many issues that challenge it in its desert location.
