The North Carolina State University Campus Stores Committee Records contain meeting minutes, correspondence, reports, and clippings. The materials range in date from 1951 to 1984, but the majority of the records are from 1954-1971.

In 1952, the Board of Trustees of the Consolidated University of North Carolina established that each of its three campuses should have a Campus Stores Committee consisting of three members of the student body and three faculty. Each Committee was to hear student complaints and suggestions regarding the Campus Supply Stores and advise campus store managers and university administrators as to how the Campus Stores might better serve students and faculty. The Campus Stores Committee, also known as the Campus Stores Advisory Committee, first met at North Carolina State College (later North Carolina State University) during the 1952-1953 school year. Since its formation, the committee has addressed issues such as textbook prices, student difficulties acquiring textbooks, use of store profits, and the selection of items available for student purchase. As of 2011 the group is known as the Bookstores Committee and continues to meet once or twice a semester to assist university administrators and bookstore managers in ensuring the bookstore meets the need of students and faculty at N.C. State.
