Digital Collections

New digital collections added

The Digital Projects unit announces several new or expanded digital collections that have gone online in the past few weeks:

American Publishers Trade Bindings, Phase II and III
Over 700 new images from the Girls Books in Series, Way and Williams, and Woman's Collections have been added, bringing the total digital collection to 1832 items.

Curry High School Yearbooks
The Curry School provided practical experience for student teachers and served as the neighborhood school for the area surrounding the UNCG campus from 1893-1970. These 22 yearbooks document student life at Curry School through photographs and are also full-text searchable.

Hansen Sheet Music Collection
Nearly 500 pieces of popular sheet music dating from 1846 to 1922 have been added to the 100+ items that were already available in the Hansen Performing Arts Collection. These may currently be browsed by composer and by show title (in most cases) and area also searchable by song title, date, and (in some cases) singer.

World War I Pamphlets Collection
Over 400 pamphlets (many of them book length) on topics ranging from specific military campaigns to civilian contributions and homeland propaganda are now available through our partnership with Lyrasis and the Internet Archive. The pamphlets are full-text searchable and also may be browsed by LC subject heading.

Look for several other new collections coming online within the next few months, including Greensboro City Directories (1884-1963), phase one of the Greensboro Patriot newspaper (1826-1922), a selection of pictorial works and newspapers provided by the Greensboro Historical Museum, and the remaining issues of UNCG's student newspaper, The Carolinian (1931 to present).

Collections to be added in the coming academic year include a collection of materials relating to cellist Bernard Greenhouse; a large collection of physical education pamphlets held by the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives; a number of scrapbooks that are part of the University Archives; issues of Dead City Radio and other materials related to WUAG, the campus radio station; posters from the Women Veterans Historical Project collection; and additional photos and other material in the University History Collections.
