J. Murrey Atkins Library Special Collections is pleased to be a participant in the historically rich digital project: Civil War in the American South.

This digital collection documents the plans for the urban redevelopment of Charlotte in the 1960s and 1970s.  Created in 1957, the Charlotte Redevelopment Commission was charged with projects which cleared rundown areas of Charlotte but also projects for rehabilitation of declining older neighborhoods.  The areas where these projects took place were Belmont, Brooklyn, Cherry, Dilworth, Downtown, First Ward, Greenville, North Charlotte, Third Ward, and Wilmore. By far the largest of these areas were the Brooklyn and Greenville areas. The first demolition took place in 1961.

Three group study rooms will receive significant technological and configuration upfittings, along with brand new 55" wall-mounted flat panel monitors, thanks to an $18,500 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant secured by Michael Winecoff, Atkins Library's associate university librarian for technical services.

Over 40 linear feet of former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory’s official documents, photos and personal papers are now available to the public.

J. Murrey Atkins Library will present several topics at this year's Southeast EDUCAUSE Conference, an annual event that supports the organization's mission to advance "higher education through the creative and intelligent use of information technoogy."  Held in Tampa, Florida from May 29-June1, the 2012 conference theme is “The Way Forward...Engaging Technologies, Relationships, and Communities”.
