"The North Carolina Collection preserves an incomparable assemblage of literary, visual, and artifactual materials illustrating four centuries of the colony and state of North Carolina." Housed in the Louis Round Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, "today more than 120,000 books and 78,000 pamphlets form the core of the North Carolina Collection, but these formats are supplemented by newspapers, journals, maps, broadsides, photographs, audiovisuals, microforms, and other materials."
The State Library
"The library acquires materials that support the work of North Carolina government agencies and provides access to information resources that are vital to economic development and public decision-making. An extensive and up-to-date reference collection supplies universal coverage and is designed to meet general and specialized information needs. Electronic access to thousands of databases is available through NCLIVE, in-house CD-ROMs, commercial online products and the Internet. As the official depository for state government publications and as a partial depository for federal documents, the library is an excellent source for information disseminated by government agencies."
