OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Criss Library is set to become home to Omaha’s only archives dedicated to LGBTQIA culture.

The library’s archives and special collections and the university’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center will formally launch the Queer Omaha Archives on Wednesday evening.

UNO Archives and Special Collections Director Amy Schindler says the country is in the midst of a social shift, and “that is something we have a duty to document.”

The archive already contains several boxes of material donated by community members and UNO faculty, staff and students. Officials hope it grows over the next few years.

The event is free and open to the public, but officials are asking people to RSVP at [email protected] in order to ensure enough space and refreshments.
