Atkins Library supports the research, teaching, and community engagement missions of UNC Charlotte through digital collections. The online availability of digital copies of Atkins Library's unique materials improves access and facilitates scholarship.
Goldmine is the home for digital primary source materials from Atkins Library’s Special Collections and University Archives that relate to Charlotte regional history. View this How-To Video on Using Goldmine to learn more about searching and browsing the site.
JSTOR has many of the same collections as Goldmine (mainly manuscripts, publications, and many photographs).
Web Archives in Archive-It: archived versions of websites, including those of the University, the city of Charlotte, the county of Mecklenburg, and some local individuals and organizations.
Special Collections and University Archives has contributed content to collaborative projects hosted at other institutions:
North Carolina Digital Heritage Center (UNC Charlotte yearbooks, newspapers, and other materials)
Enslaved People in the Southeast
Beaux Arts to Modernism (architecture)
Religion in North Carolina
