Special Collections Research Center
Collections supporting research in the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism in the NC State College of Natural Resources are rich, particularly in the documentation of greenways. Records documenting the establishment and maintenance of both regional and national greenways are preserved in the Special Collections Research Center.
Thanks to a grant from the Evergreen Foundation, the Special Collections Research Center was able to increase the holdings relative to existing and proposed greenways across the United States and make this information available for future greenways development. This was accomplished through the completion of two nation-wide surveys that are housed in the Special Collections Research Center, the acquisition of a variety of greenways resources, the development of a pamphlet and website detailing the collections, and the commencement of an ambitious digital mapping project. Access to these online resources can be gained by going to the Greenways Archive home page.
