Digital Collections

Scrapbooks going online

The Digital Projects team is beginning to place the first items from the University Archives Scrapbooks Collection online. This two-year project involved scanning 239 scrapbooks, resulting in over 23,000 digital images (over 600 GB of material) and this final stage of the project will place them all online is the University Archives digital collection. The scrapbooks were created by university departments, student organizations, residence halls, and other groups affiliated with the university and document the first century of UNCG's history and culture in a very visual manner. The scrapbooks contain photographs, clippings, and ephemera ranging from ribbons and ticket stubs to a peanut in a dress.

As of Monday, forty items are online. More will be added in the next few weeks. The scrapbooks can be seen here and you can also subscribe to follow the updates as they happen.
