Flickr Updates and a new State Government Web Archives Site

Our Non-Textual Materials Archivist, Kim Cumber, has recently added new sets of photographs to our Flickr account including photos of 1980s Raleigh night life, the Chatham County Courthouse, and the Raleigh sit-ins of 1960. I’ve also added a social media section to the Online Projects page on the State Archives web site; currently the section includes links to Flickr and this blog, but I will be adding other social media links there as they become available.

In other news, the North Carolina State Government Web Site Archives has a new web address: The staff in the Government Records Branch and the State Library’s Digital Information Management Program (DIMP) have redesigned the site to make it easier to search. If you are unfamiliar with the Web Site Archives (WSA), it is a site that allows you to search versions of North Carolina state government web sites dating back to 1996. For more information about what web sites have been archived and how they were harvested, visit the WSA About page.
