First and foremost we define a Resource as any type of media, print, digital or otherwise, that can be readily accessed to assist in investigating, answering or resolving a research question/problem.

Staff and patrons alike have immediate access to a number of resources available at the Center. Some of the resources we use are available at other institutions while some of our other resources are only available through us. Below is a list of some the resources we rely on when fulfilling a research request.


Exclusive Resources

All of our in-house projects are considered “Exclusive Resources” as they cannot be found anywhere else or in the format we have developed. Some of these resources are:


Specialized Resources

Privately compiled or created resources are the types of items that fall within the “Specialized Resources” category. Some of the specialized resources we hold are:


Microfilm Collections

We are home to several microfilm collections which are listed below. Please click the collection name to view the holdings for that set.


NSHS Newspaper Microfilm

One of the benefits we enjoy and take full advantage of is the ability to rent microfilm directly from the Nebraska State Historical Society in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our fees to rent microfilm is based solely on what it costs us to get and return the films. Below are two lists which you can use to help locate the films you would like to view. The fist list will display the entire NSHS newspaper microfilm collection sorted by City/Town name. The second list is similar to the first however the films are sorted by county name.

    I have an extensive genealogy of the Bigsby-Hoke family on and would be happy to provide information on individuals in that file. I am Paul Bigsby’s daughter. The file includes other Banner County people including, the Grubbs, Ball, Heinz families.
