Moving Image Inventories

The Moving Image Collections held by History Nebraska contain over 6 million feet of motion picture film and thousands of vintage videotape formats, all relating to Nebraska by virtue of their content or production. Moving images date from 1900 to the recent past. The collections contain many genres, such as home movies, sponsored and promotional works, public service films, local television news footage, and Nebraska-made “local talent” films. The content is particularly rich in agriculture and ranching activities, town scenes, domestic life, Native Americans, aviation, railroads, and Nebraska businesses.

Access to the collections is accomplished through consultation with the Curator of Audiovisual Collections. Moving images are digitized on demand, and there may be a cost. Media producers may be required to pay use fees. Please review our fees for the Use of Moving Images and Sound Recordings for more information.

For examples from the moving image collections, see the History Nebraska Youtube Channel’s archival moving image playlist. Additional information about various moving image collections can also be found by searching the online Collections Database.

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.
