Below are some strategies for locating Special Collections and University Archives materials. With the exception of most of the government documents, the physical materials listed here can be accessed in the reading room on the 10th floor of the library. For further help, please visit the reading room or contact us at email@example.com or 704-687-1170.
- All books have been cataloged and their records can be found in the Library catalog. A keyword search is available to locate items, but they are also searchable via title, author, subject, call number, and ISBN number if you have it.
- Periodicals are cataloged and their records can be found in the Library catalog.
- Finding aids for our current holdings of manuscript collections (personal papers and archives of community organizations) have been made available for online browsing and keyword searching -- or you can explore a list of manuscript collection summaries organized by subject. These finding aids do not link to online collections; they help you find physical collections.
Oral History Interviews
- Many of our oral history interview transcripts and recordings can be accessed through the website New South Voices and the Goldmine repository.
- Many photographs are online and available in Atkins Digital Collections.
- Bryant McMuray Motorsports Photographs can be found online in the Goldmine repository.
- Most photographs are in physical (analog) formats rather than digital. These can be identified by searching our manuscript finding aids.
