The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is hosting its third annual History Harvest event to honor the state's past.

The event will take place March 15 at the Nebraska History Museum, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The project brings together computer science and history students to produce a digital history of Nebraska.

UNL history professor Will Thomas says the project will help make remnants of the state's history available to teachers and scholars. It may also reveal new, untold stories about Nebraska.

The event is free and open to anyone who can contribute. Materials include but are not limited to diaries, photographs, letters, maps, images, war memorabilia and other heirlooms. Students will not keep the items, but will digitally document them. The finished products will go into a website and eBook.
