Time to post a few non-Civil War announcements:
First, one of our interns (Emily Guhde, a student at UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Library Science) has just finished updating our MARS online catalog help pages. She’s streamlined everything, elaborated on a few sections that needed fleshing out, and hopefully made the help pages easier to read and understand. The only section that is not yet complete is the Call Number Search, but we hope to add that soon. [Updated 04/04/2011 – call number search information was added today.] Emily has also been working on some video tutorials on how to search in MARS and we hope to add those online soon as well.
Second, Kim Cumber (our Non-Textual Materials Archivist) passed along a link to the website for UNC-TV’s North Carolina’s WWII Experience documentary. On the page for “North Carolina 1940” you can watch digitized versions of an item from our collections – the Department of Conservation and Development’s film North Carolina’s Variety Vacationland. You may remember that some of the first Archives materials added to the North Carolina Digital Collections were images from the Dept. of Conservation and Development.
