BACKGROUND NOTE



The Nebraska History Network first began forming in June of 1984.  The group was initially called the Association of Nebraska Historical Organizations.  After several meetings and a decision to change the name, the Nebraska History Network established their articles of incorporation on November 3, 1984.  The objective of the organization was to “unite groups and individuals which have a mutual interest in preserving and developing Nebraska’s historical resources.  The Network will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and information among members and a means of educating the general public on local history and related issues.”



By the late 1990s membership interest had fallen.  Several other organizations had been performing similar activities, including the Nebraska Museums Association and the Nebraska State Historical Society’s Field Services department.  Membership of the Nebraska History Network eventually voted to dissolve the organization in March of 1999.



SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE



The collection consists of one box containing organizational records related to the Nebraska History Network.  Materials include bylaws, board of directors’ information, minutes of meetings, financial records, correspondence and membership materials.  The records date from 1984 to 1999.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
