Notice About COVID-19 Response
Special Collections and University Archives does not yet know the date we will reopen. Atkins Library leaders are taking guidance from campus officials who are monitoring the public health situation. As soon as we know when we will be able to reopen, we will begin scheduling research appointments. Please check back regularly or follow us on social media for the latest information. We regret the inconvenience and look forward to the day we can invite you back to the Dalton Reading Room.
In the meantime, we will continue to connect students and community members with Charlotte history and primary sources. Please explore our digital collections in Goldmine and contact us to inquire about instruction, reference, and reproduction services.
