The project Omaha Stories: Oral Histories of Omaha, Nebraska shares the stories of the people of Omaha through oral history interviews. These oral histories were gathered from many sources.

In 2017, UNO Libraries received a $10,000 grant from Humanities Nebraska that will make 224 oral history interviews conducted from 1974 to 2007 freely available to the public online for the first time. Omaha Stories will implement a new tool, the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS), and utilize existing infrastructure and tools used by the UNO Libraries, including ContentDM and Omeka, to share the people and voices of Omaha’s past with the present. Omaha Stories will make freely available to the public online 102 oral history interviews conducted under the direction of UNO history professor Michael Tate in the mid-1970s and 122 interviews conducted by UNO faculty Paul Borge and Jack Newton from 1979 to 2007 for the UNO television series Reflections in Time.
