about the unc digital collections
Welcome to the digital collections of the UNC University Library. Here you will find unique materials for research, teaching, and discovery.
The digital collections site features materials drawn from the collections of the Library. Other collections are the result of collaborations with UNC faculty members and partner libraries, museums, and cultural heritage institutions.
The digital collections emphasize North Carolina and the American South. Topics include the experience of African Americans, the Civil War, the arts, economics, and politics. Documenting the American South (DocSouth), the Library's award-winning digital publishing initiative, provides access to important texts, images, and audio files for the study of Southern history, literature, and culture.
For further information about digital collections at the UNC Library, contact the Carolina Digital Library and Archives.
