Suggest an Author
We are always interested in adding new or previously overlooked authors to the Nebraska Authors database. If you have an author to suggest, please consider the following guidelines:
- It helps us to know why you would consider the author to be a Nebraska author. For the purposes of the database, we usually define a Nebraska author to be someone who was born in Nebraska, someone who lived here for more than a decade, or someone who had a significant life experience in Nebraska and wrote about it.
- The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
- Because of the way we are staffed, expect additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
- While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.
