The North Carolina State University Libraries SOLINET records contain correspondence, reports, newsletters, grants, Board of Directors' minutes, membership meeting minutes relating to founding of SOLINET and the participation of North Carolina State University.

The Southeastern Library Network (SOLINET) was a not-for-profit membership cooperative of libraries and other information organizations in the southeastern U.S. Established in 1973 by the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL), SOLINET collaborated with member libraries and local, regional, and national partners to provide leadership for cooperative action to improve access to information and enable members to effectively address the region’s needs for education and economic development. SOLINET emphasized the value of a cooperative infrastructure for the wise stewardship of information and human and financial resources. Each member received the benefits of regional library cooperation through sharing of resources and expertise, forums for collaboration, and access to cost-effective programs and services. In 2009, SOLINET and PALINET (serving libraries in the mid-Atlantic) merged to form Lyrasis.
