New digital collections

The Digital Projects team announces the debut of several new digital collections:

  • Charles Duncan McIver Records
    This collection makes available the papers of UNCG's founder and first president, largely in their entirety. Comprising over 123,000 pages of material, the McIver Records document the founding and early years of the North Carolina State Normal and Industrial School (now UNCG) and include material on early construction, the typhoid epidemic, and the fire that destroyed Brick Dormitory. This collection was digitized as part of the larger Textiles, Teachers, and Troops grant project funded through an LSTA grant administered by the North Carolina State Library.
  • Robert Watson Papers
    The Robert W. Watson Manuscripts date from 1948 to 1980 and contain manuscripts, typescripts, publisher's proofs and galleys, clippings, correspondence, photographs, and reviews. Watson was the main architect of UNCG's Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program, considered one of the best in the nation. The Watson Papers have been digitized almost in their entirety (nearly 6000 pages of material); several folders were skipped due to copyright concerns. 
  • Home Economics, Food, and Nutrition Pamphlets Collection
    The Home Economics and Nutrition Pamphlets Collection consists of government and commercial publications on the subject of home management and nutrition and include educational materials, recipes, household hints, and other materials. The digital collection was built from resources held in the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives and the University Libraries Government Documents Collection. All materials are presumed to be in the public domain. The Government Documents portion of the collection was digitized as UNCG's contribution to the ASERL Centers of Excellence Program. Additional materials will be added in subsequent phases.
More new collections will be announced next week.
