*THIS IS AN ONLINE EXHIBIT AVAILABLE FREE TO THE PUBLIC*
University Libraries at the University of Nevada, Reno is celebrating Women’s History Month by launching a special DIGITAL interactive and engaging story map project titled, “History of Women at Nevada.” The project honors those women whose ideas and abilities have constructed our University of Nevada, Reno throughout history, as well as those who are still trailblazing today. Interact with the project by clicking here.
The project, created by Library staffer Natasha Majewski, recognizes the many achievements of women on campus from as early as 1904. It includes, but is not limited to, stories of the suffrage movement on campus, women in science, women bridging cultural divides, the rise of feminism, women in medicine, women’s sororities, clubs and secret societies. A sample of the colleges and departments included in the project are history, mining and engineering, the Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN), Wolf Pack Athletics, biology, the Nevada Sagebrush and many more.
