Digital Projects at Randall Library

University of North Carolina Wilmington Digital Collections are the product of collaborative projects within the library, the university, and the wider community. They include digitized artifacts, art, diaries, letters, newspapers, photographs, oral histories, and reports. These collections focus on the history of the University of North Carolina Wilmington as well as the history of Southeast North Carolina and the Lower Cape Fear Region. Some UNCW Digital Collections are also discoverable in large aggregate sites like DigitalNCDPLA, and Internet Archive.

Digital Initiatives continues to seek partnerships with the wider community to create digital projects to enhance teaching and research. Projects could entail analog or born digital material from the library specialized collections, general collection, or from other sources. If you have a project proposal idea, please contact us!
