Reflections in Time is a series of 125 interviews produced by the University of Nebraska at Omaha from 1979 to 2007 with alumni, staff, faculty, and administrators. Of the 125 interviews in this series, the first 73 programs were produced by Professor of Communication Paul Borge and the final 52 were produced by Dean of Arts & Sciences Jack Newton.
This online exhibit is a work in a progress. Profile pages have been created for fewer than 10% of the Reflections in Time interviewees to date. If you know the name of the interview you would like to view you may search the finding aid.
Each interviewee provides biographical information as well as discussing their experiences at the university. The interviews provide an excellent window into the history of Omaha University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha as well as personal and world events of the 20th century.
Curating this online exhibit for Reflections in Time was begun in August 2015 and will continue as resources permit until thorough and informative pages are completed for each UNO interviewee. Donor support for the project can ensure that robust information is available for the public about each interviewee more quickly. To support this initiative, contact Director of Archives & Special Collections Amy Schindler at 402-554-6046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oral history is one of many sources available to consult as part of your research. It reflects the experience of an individual and shares personal opinions offered by the interviewee in response to questioning. Additional sources can verify and provide additional information to the narrative of events presented in oral histories. Contact Criss Library Archives & Special Collections to continue your research, find additional sources, or learn more.
What material from Criss Library Archives & Special Collections do researchers use? This exhibit offers a selection of material from Criss Library Archives & Special Collections recently digitized at the request of researchers.
A university is not created or continued because of a single document or individual. Documents, events, and the actions of individuals from throughout a university's history are part of the history, present, and future of the educational institution. This online exhibit presents some of the interesting documents from the history of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Omaha that played a role in making it the university it is today. The material available here will continue to grow as the university continues to grow and change.
