New UNCSA Archives Digital Collections portal now available
The UNCSA Archives staff is excited to introduce the new UNCSA Archives Digital Collections, your portal to digitized material from the Archives. Here you can search or browse over 13,000 digitized photographs and posters from the Archives collections, including:
- Photographs from productions (“Brigadoon”), classes (D&P class), student activities and campus life, special events (25th Anniversary), buildings and campus views (Gray Building), and more.
- A poster from the first “Nutcracker” performance at NCSA.
You can search the Digital Collections using keywords, or use tags and sorting options to find what you’re looking for.
Additional groups of material – such as performance programs and design drawings -- will be added soon, with audiovisual material coming in the future. More content is added regularly as it is digitized, so check back often to see what’s new!
The Digital Collections are only a portion of the physical holdings of the Archives. Collection descriptions in the UNCSA Archives Collections Database provide information about the creation, historical context, and inventories of collection contents, and can help you explore the full range of Archives collections. The UNCSA Archives collects material documenting the history of the school, dating from its founding in 1963 to the present. Collections include campus publications, sound and video recordings, performance programs and posters, and photographs, as well as material related to professional affiliate programs and the creative careers of members of the UNCSA community.
The UNCSA Archives is open for in-person research by appointment, and Archives staff are happy to help you with your search. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
We hope you will check out the UNCSA Archives during October, which is National Archives Month. The month is intended to raise public awareness about the importance of historic documents and records.
