Revamped ‘Nebraska Studies’ Website is Trusted History Resource

LINCOLN, Neb. (Aug. 27, 2018) – The newly-redesigned “Nebraska Studies” website (nebraskastudies.org) welcomes students, teachers and history buffs of all ages with updated content and an improved search engine.

Designed by NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, “Nebraska Studies” puts Nebraska history at users’ fingertips. The site is rich with archival photos, historic documents, personal letters, special video segments, informative maps, supplemental activities and much more.

Teachers will find lessons plans based on Nebraska standards to use in their classrooms, and engaging content that is suitable for students representing a variety of age groups and abilities.

Since “Nebraska Studies” first launched in 2001, teachers, students and lifelong learners have viewed more than 10 million pages on the website.

“This website began as a partnership between NET, the Nebraska State Historical Society and the State Department of Education to fulfill the need for Nebraska history resources in the classroom. Today, it’s the ‘go to’ website for educators and students across the state,” said NET General Manager Mark Leonard.

From the state’s beginnings through the 21st century, “Nebraska Studies” connects visitors to Nebraska history as they follow the historical timeline, explore events that shaped our state and meet notable Nebraskans.
