About the Blog
The Government and Heritage Library Blog is an informative online news source focusing on the collections, resources, and expert services of the Government and Heritage Library. The blog’s goal is to connect users to the valuable resources in the library’s print and digital collections that provide information about North Carolina’s past and present and support genealogical research.
The Government and Heritage Library staff are responsible for posting news and information about our print and digital collections and electronic resources as well as our specialty research areas of state and federal government information, demographic and statistical information, North Carolina and Southern U.S. history, and genealogical research. Staff also posts information about new resource acquisitions, digitization and digital information projects, new digital collections and information products, and upcoming Library programs, events and training.
There will be new entries and content posted daily. We invite you to subscribe and share your comments and questions.
Many of our postings concern materials featured in our digital collections which are best viewed in Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.
