What's Missing in the 125th Commemorative Issue
When we set out a year ago to make this our commemorative issue, we acknowledged a hard reality that distilling 125 years into a 42-page magazine would invariably result in missed moments.
That's where the Archival Services Department comes in.
The department houses a trove of artifacts in Michener Library to preserve the legacy of the university. Thanks to technology, and a commitment by Archival Services staff, those preservation efforts now include digitizing records and making them available to anyone online.
The digital smorgasbord features yearbooks dating to 1909, historic photos (including more aerial shots of the university like the one on page 20), course bulletins and catalogs dating to the first class in 1890, and archived copies of the magazine. Digital UNC, as it's called, is a rich resource that will continue growing.
