Community Partnership Agreement between DAAL and UNO
The Danish American Archive and Library and the University of Nebraska at Omaha have formed a community partnership agreement for the benefit of both institutions. Through this agreement DAAL and UNO plan to provide research opportunities for UNO faculty and students, share and exchange selected materials, and cooperate on future creative and educational projects.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha, a campus of the University of Nebraska system, is a metropolitan university with approximately 15,000 students, and is located 30 miles from DAAL in the heart of Omaha. The proximity of the two institutions makes it convenient to exchange information, personnel and resources.
“This agreement marks a high point in the history of the Archive,” says DAAL President Tim Jensen. “I’m excited about the research possibilities this opens up for both institutions.”
Top officials from UNO, including Chancellor John Christensen, took part in the Archive’s grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony October 4, 2011. Chancellor Christensen expressed his enthusiasm for the agreement and future cooperation between the two institutions. An additional visit to the Archive was made by Tim Kahldahl, Director of UNO University Relations, UNO’s Dean of Library, and the UNO library’s archivist.
