There have been two very nice articles published in recent weeks highlighting the work of the Southern Historical Collection and our partner collections throughout the Louis Round Wilson Special Collections Library.
The first is an article by the UNC General Alumni Association covering two newly-awarded grants for film preservation that were awarded to the Southern Folklife Collection and the Southern Historical Collection (both headquartered here in the fourth floor penthouse of Wilson Library). These grants will provide critical funds for a project that will allow over 2,350 hours of rare film to be made available to the general public.
The second article is a piece by Ashley Bennett of UNC’s student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, discussing some of the great work going on in Wilson Library (and particularly in the Southern Historical Collection) to make our collections more accessible to our patrons
We really appreciate the great press and are excited to see these projects unfold.
