Special Collections has many images, documents, and books on Hoover Dam.  

Special Collections also houses numerous oral histories that feature the personal stories of individuals who worked on Hoover Dam and information on those can be found through Library QuickSearch.

There are many thousands of photographs of the construction of Hoover Dam in Special Collections.

  • Inventories of photo collections that feature images of Hoover Dam - they search the captions that describe the photos, and you would need to take down the collection and image number of the photos to view them in Special Collections.
  • You can also view actual photos of Hoover Dam that have been digitized by looking in the Las Vegas and Water in the West digital collection.
