If so you'll want to check out one of the latest digital archives to come on line. The state of North Carolina joins a long list of states that are either placing or have placed their newspapers and and other media on line. Although the Digital Library appears to have been around since at least 2010, the word just seems to be getting out.
Entitled Digital North Carolina, North Carolina's Digital Heritage, the website is loaded with tons of newspapers, scrapbooks, city directories and MORE.
I stumbled upon the website quite by accident but I can see I'll be doing some exploring here very soon. Lots to explore for sure! To keep up with all that's being posted, I've followed the blog, which you can check out here.
Here's to happy researching!
