Accessing the Collection
Some images were used in the student yearbooks and student newspapers and were transferred from administrators of those publications. During the period these photographs cover, the student newspaper was known as The Carolina Journal (1965-1982), 49er Times (1982-1989), and University Times (1989-2011). Yearbooks were titled The Si Si (1965), The Nugget (1966), Rogues ‘N Rascals (1967-1981), and The Prospector (1983-1985). Digitized copies of the student newspaper and yearbooks are available online through Digital NC.
Other images were transferred from individuals or specific offices on campus. For instance, some photos relating to planning and building construction came from Facilities Management. According to their website, “The Planning unit within Facilities Management is responsible for the initial planning documents for construction and renovation projects, space allocations and other efforts. Planning includes the real estate, space management, and sustainability offices.
