Access to materials

Collection is open for research; access requires at least 48 hours advance notice. Because of the nature of certain archival formats, including digital and audio-visual materials, access will require additional advanced notice. Copies of digital files will be provided for use in the SCRC Reading Room upon request.

We perform virus scans upon ingest and upon request for access. However, not all virus software profiles will catch all threats, especially newer, not yet recognized ones. The researcher assumes all risk when opening files.

While electronic files are made available to researchers, some files may not open with current software or at all. Researchers may be required to find and use legacy software packages to read files.

Some or all electronic files may be unavailable or restricted due to privacy reasons, agreement with the donor, or because files cannot be retrieved from original media.

The North Carolina Research Campus Papers, 2006-2010, contain master plans, architectural drawings, DVDs, CDs, published research, newspaper articles, magazines, and flash drives related to the founding, construction, and activities of the North Carolina Research Campus. The materials are primarily concerned with the built environment of the campus as well as the events and research that occur there. The collection spans the full breadth of operations at the NCRC, and as such contain items related to many of the universities and corporations that maintain facilities on the campus. The materials range in date from 2006 to 2010.

In December 2004, David Murdock purchased the former Cannon Mills Plant One at auction and in 2005, in partnership with the University of North Carolina system, announced plans for the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC), a 1.5 billion dollar scientific and economic revitalization project. This private-public venture serves to foster collaboration and further knowledge in biotechnology, nutrition, agriculture, and health. Since its groundbreaking in 2006, the NCRC has expanded to include universities, business partners, over 130 employees, and five buildings. Cannon Mills, located in Kannapolis, North Carolina, was at one time the largest manufacturer of sheets and towels in the world. Founded in 1906, the mills went through several ownership changes before being acquired by the Pillowtex Corporation in 1997. In 2003, Pillowtex Corporation closed its doors, laying off 4,340 people living in the Kannapolis area.
