Textile industry-produced marketing materials, reports, brochures, catalogs, etc., complete, in many cases, with textile samples documenting the effectiveness of particular dyestuffs on the various fabrics. Also included are a small number of government documents.

The Institute of Textile Technology transferred its library to North Carolina State University's Burlington Textiles Library when it moved its operations to the NCSU Centennial Campus. The Burlington Textiles Library had maintained for years a vertical file for quick reference. After the merger of the two libraries, the Burlington Textiles Library transferred the historically valuable materials from both collections to the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center.
