Atkins Library Special Collections seeks to promote and expand access to our rare and unique materials through an ongoing digitization program. The subject focus of our digitized collections is life in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region, from before the Civil War to the late twentieth century. The types of materials include photographs and other visual formats, family papers, and correspondence. - http://digitalcollections.uncc.edu
