If you’ve visited the Atkins Library recently you may have walked past the display cases in the atrium without realizing their contents. Inside are letters, books, photos and other items which illustrate the progress of African Americans since the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

J. Murrey Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte is very pleased to host THATCamp Piedmont 2013 on March 22 and 23, 2013, at the University’s Center City Building in Uptown. THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.”  It's an unconference:  an open, free meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.

Congratulations to Judy Walker, UNC Charlotte education/psychology librarian, on being selected for the 2013 Distinguished Education and Behavioral Sciences Librarian Award by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). She will be presented the award in June during the 2013 American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago.

Today, we recognize Frederick Douglas Alexander who was born on this date, February 21, 1910. Alexander was Charlotte's first African American member of the Chamber of Commerce as well as the first African American city councilmen. To learn more about Frederick Douglass Alexander, visit Special Collections.

Atkins Library is pleased to announce that we have signed a contract with BioMed Central for a Supporter Membership for BMC’s Open Access publishing program and SpringerOpen titles. Beginning February 15th, submitting UNC Charlotte authors whose articles are accepted for publication in those journals will receive a 15% reduction in article processing charges (APCs).
