The records of the North Carolina State University Library Committee span from 1934 to 1998 and include the records of the Library Building Committee, a subcommittee of the Library Committee formed to oversee the construction of additional library facilities in the 1960s. Included in the collection are the minutes of the committee, fund allocations, correspondence from various departments and information on library policy. Documents relating to construction in the 1960s span from 1965 to 1967 and include bound proposals for the construction and use of the facility. Documents are arranged chronologically, with building committee records following full committee records.

The North Carolina State University (North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, 1887-1917; North Carolina State College, 1917-1965) Library Committee was first formed in 1908. English professors, Thomas P. Harrison and George Summey were appointed as co-chairs of the library committee. The role of the committee was to contact faculty for recommendations of titles to be added to the library collection. The role of the library committee has expanded since this time and, though it still advises on accessions, it also handles the finnancial responsibilities of the library, oftentimes advocating for more facility resources and making descisions on library policies. As of 2012, the University Library Committee (also referred to as the University Standing Committee on Library) advises the Provost and the Director of Libraries on the fomulation of library policy in relationship to development of resources, the allocation of book funds, the allocation of library space and the general development of library service to the University.
