Digitization News and Outer Bankers To Be Remembered

Two bits of news today from 109 E. Jones St.

From our Facebook page comes the announcement that the Collections Management Branch will soon be installing a new archive writer, which will be used to create 35mm security microfilm from digital images. To quote the announcement, “We will be able to accept digital public records in nearly any size and file format for conversion to microfilm for security back up of our state’s most valuable records.”

There is also a new finding aid on the Outer Banks History Center website:
