About Nebraska Western Trails

The Western Trails Project is a multi-state collaborative between Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Participants in the project digitize and provide World Wide Web access to photographs, text, and maps about historic, and modern trails in the western states. The Western Trails Project was funded through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Nebraska Library Commission is the coordinator for the Nebraska participants. 

Participation Criteria

Project participants must be Nebraska cultural heritage institutions, e.g.   Libraries, Museums, or Archives.  Projects must digitize primary source materials, that is, original Nebraska trails-related historical and cultural material only, not printed material or reproductions of original documents.  Materials must be owned by the participating institutions.  Privately owned materials are not accepted.   Material that is not trails-related may be eligible for inclusion in  Nebraska Memories, a statewide database hosted by the Nebraska Library Commission. 


Every image on the Nebraska Western Trails database has, as part of the description of the image, a contact number or link to a Web page, that specifies the conditions for use of the image (RIGHTS).
