Special Collections and University Archives

On Wednesday, October 17, SCUA hosted an open house for the staff of the University Libraries. We discussed many of our department’s major initiatives, including management of the University’s digital records, classroom instruction, outreach to veterans groups, digitization of SCUA materials, oral history projects, and new digital projects (including the new North Carolina Literary Map and work to enhance the existing campus map with historical images). We also exhibited a number of our newest acquisitions, including a UNCG man’s class jacket and materials from the Lois Lenski and Bernard Greenhouse collections.

Before and after the presentation, we also ran a slideshow of historical photographs from University Archives. These images cover 120 years of University history, from the beginning of classes in 1892 through the renovation of the Quad in 2012. You can view the slide show here.

about the history of the University.

Thank you to all of the University Libraries staff who attended! To further promote SCUA collections and initiatives, we look forward to doing  more of these open houses in the future.
