Has the book "Omaha: a guide to the city and environs" been digitized? , either by OPL or another organization?
This is an exciting idea. I researched this a bit. According to Worldcat, the only libraries owning this book are OPL and UNO, although we do have numerous copies. The book is not a part of our digital collections. At least one article has been scanned which references it (see Google Scholar). I will pass your suggestion along. However, not to put a damper on your idea, at the present time we may not have the resources to implement it.
