Partners: UNL’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications, Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

NET Virtual Learning Library blends content with memorable visual images that support classrooms with supplemental materials, including suggested lesson plans, learning objectives and ties to state standards. The online library will let Nebraska teachers and students tap into more than 100,000 digital resources comprised of audio, video and interactive components from PBS favorites such as NOVA, FRONTLINE, American Experience, Sid the Science Kid and local NET content.
