In the past month, we’ve shared two major online collections of NC college yearbooks that are freely available at the Internet Archive – those of Elon College & the University of North Carolina @ Chapel Hill. Well, more digging around at the Internet Archive site reveals even more of them!
In order to make access easier for our researchers, a new page has been added to the NCGenWeb “List of Consolidated NC Resources,” a page to link you to the available yearbook collections. On the new page, you will find (at the time of this post) collections for:
- Appalachian State University – 1923-2005
- Duke University – 1919-1995
- Elizabeth City State University (African-American school) – 1925-2008
- Elon University – 1919-2009
- Louisburg College – 1867-2007
- North Carolina State University – 1903-2009
- UNC-Chapel Hill – 1890-1963
Thanks to UNC Libraries’ collaboration with the Internet Archive, we are able to have great access to these yearbooks. Though there are dates listed here, these collections continue to be updated, so exact dates may vary.
Visit the NC Yearbooks page to further explore. You could spend hours exploring, so be forewarned!
