The UNCSA Archives Digital Collections contain over 13,000 digitized photographs and documents from the Archives collections. Digitization efforts have focused on photographs of the school's Drama, All-School Musical, and Opera productions. Other subjects include Buildings and Campus Views; Campus Life and Special Events; the International Music Program; and the first campus production of The Nutcracker in 1966. Additional items are added to the database regularly as they are digitized.

Digitized copies of the NC Essay (student newspaper), course bulletins/catalogs, and yearbooks are available through DigitalNC, a statewide digitization and digital publishing program hosted by UNC Chapel Hill's Wilson Special Collections Library.

Please note that the material represented online is only a small portion of the physical holdings of the Archives - please consult the Collection Guides or contact the University Archivist to explore material on-site.
