Historical State


North Carolina State University Libraries recently announced the launch of the enhanced version of Historical State , your gateway to the online resources of the University Archives in the Special Collections Research Center:

The site now brings together—under a single architecture—a diverse set of historical resources, including digitized images, course catalogs, and yearbooks; historic timelines, narratives, and online exhibits; and catalog records of books about NC State University. Patrons can use Historical State to explore the development of campus buildings, student life, athletics, and the academic colleges and departments.

In addition, the site’s new search allows patrons to search for specific names, dates, and events. This is particularly useful with items such as course catalogs and student yearbooks, where access to information at the page level is required. Users can search seamlessly across the collection and then limit results, through facets, by type, collection, subject, genre, geographic location, and decade. An integrated “page turner” further adds value to these resources, allowing users to easily page through an entire catalog or yearbook. The full text of course catalogs and yearbooks are searchable to allow users to pinpoint pages containing search terms.

Contact the SCRC Service Desk (919-515-2273) between 8 AM and 6:30 PM for research assistance or if you have any questions.
