Scope and Content Note

In the summers of 1999 and 2000, the Evergreen Foundation and the Special Collections Research Center at NCSU Libraries initiated an archive for the maintenance of organizational records, maps, brochures, and other publications pertaining to greenways in the United States and Canada. The formation of Greenways organizations began in the 1980s to preserve the earth's dwindling natural resources. The need to conserve these natural resources led many grass roots organizations, governmental agencies, and local communities to protect the existing natural surroundings while at the same time transform decaying urban areas into greenways and other nature trails.

The International Greenways Resource Collection was initiated in hopes of gathering resources which would be beneficial to researchers interested in the history and creation of greenways and other urban design movements. The Resource Collection is an ongoing project to which additional material will be added as they are received.


Series Note

The International Greenways Resource Collection is divided into four series. The Foreign series contains information on greenways outside of the United States. The National series documents greenways organizations that operate across the country. The Regional series houses information that pertains to greenways that transcend state boundaries but do not encompass a national outlook. The States series is limited to greenways that operate only in a particular state. Within series the folders are organized alphabetically according to organization name.
