Textiles have been an important part of NC State University for over a century. The NC State College of Textiles has a rich history and is a world leader in textiles education. Over the years, a library collection has been developed to support the curriculum and research programs at the college, beginning with early courses in weaving and textile design through current research in areas such as biomedical textiles and textile nanotechnologies. The Burlington Textiles Library is unique in the United States for both the breadth and depth of its collections and ranks as a world-class textiles information center. Drawing on the holdings of the University Archives and the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center, this exhibit features the highlights of the Burlington Textiles Library's history.
