Access to materials

Collection is open for research; access requires at least 48 hours advance notice. Access to original digital photographs is restricted; patrons must request a use copy.

The North Carolina State University Libraries photograph collection consists of photographs, slides, and negatives depicting the campus libraries, the library staff, patrons, library events, and the Friends of the Library from 1941 until 2006.

The first library at North Carolina State University was established in 1889 in a room in Holladay Hall. In 1925 a new purpose-built library building was constructed (now Brooks Hall). In 1954 the current D.H. Hill Library building was opened (originally just the east wing of the current structure). The library space was expanded in 1971 by building an 11-story book tower and connecting the original space with the former student union (now the Erdahl-Cloyd or west wing). Further expansion and renovation occurred in the 1980s, culminating in 1990 with the opening of the second (or "south") bookstack tower. In 2013 the award-winning James B. Hunt Library opened on the university’s Centennial Campus.
