About the Project
Better Living in North Carolina: Bringing Science and Technology to the People, is a two year grant funded project to digitize correspondence, reports, audio recordings, scrapbooks, and other primary sources on agricultural extension in North Carolina. The project is a collaboration between the NCSU Libraries and the F. D. Bluford Library at North Carolina A&T State University.
Better Living provides researchers with primary source documentation and related historical information on the impact of the NC Agricultural Extension / Cooperative Extension offices, staff, faculty, and students on the development of the state's agricultural economy and on North Carolina citizens.
This project was partially supported with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
Selected materials from these physical collections have been digitized as part of the project.
