New Digital Resources at UNC University Libraries

:: Digital Southern Historical Collection
The Southern Historical Collection (SHC) at the University of North Carolina (UNC) has developed a large-scale digitization program that is designed to provide online access to entire manuscript collections or to substantial portions of collections. Thirty-five collections have so far been digitized in whole or in part under this program. Clicking on a collection name will take you to the collection's finding aid (a descriptive guide to the collection's contents). To search for other SHC collections or other digitized collections in UNC University Libraries, please use the online catalog, the finding aids search page, or browse an online listing of digital collections. (UNC Health Sciences Library Digital Collections can also be accessed online; information on the North Carolina History of Health Digital Collection grant project is available here). Read more . . .
