Currently the State Archives website is unreachable – attempts to connect to the site redirect to the online store for the Battleship USS North Carolina. The MARS online catalog is also down. Our IT staff is aware of and working on the problem. Meanwhile, the North Carolina Digital Collections is still available.
We will update this post when more information becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Update (5:41 PM): And, as is so often the way with such things, MARS came back online as soon as I posted this blog post. So that tool should now be available for researchers again.
Update (2/24/2016): Both the website and MARS are available. You may see a few warning banners on the website – IT is aware of the issue and working on it.
