From Madison to Ocracoke

Many of you have heard the phrase, “From Murphy to Manteo,” right? Well, I’m changing it for this blog entry. The phrase this week is: “From Madison to Ocracoke.” I’m temporarily modifying it to highlight two new resources recently posted to the UNC Library’s website. The first, which was created by graduate assistant Carrie Bertling in consultation with several library and UNC School of Education staff members, is Change in the Mountains. Developed as an instructional module for the “Oral Histories of the American South” digitization project, it uses oral histories, maps, and photographs from Madison County to “discuss tradition, growth, loss, and balance” in the changing North Carolina mountains. The second, which was created by graduate student Laura Westmoreland, is a research guide for Ocracoke Island.
