Durham Tech Digital Archives

There are lots of treasures to be discovered in Durham Tech’s Digital Archives!  The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center is a statewide digitization and digital publishing program housed in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We have partnered with the Digital Heritage Center to digitize and publish Durham Tech’s historic materials online.

The Digital Heritage Center

Durham Tech has a lot of partners that help provide a wide range of services and access to information. One of those partners is UNC Chapel Hill’s North Carolina Digital Heritage Center (http://www.digitalnc.org). The Center’s mission is support “community engagement and lifelong learning by promoting and increasing access to North Carolina’s cultural heritage.” This includes helping libraries like Durham Tech’s library digitize information, which increases access to the materials.

Materials from Durham Tech can be viewed here.  Publications include course catalogs, yearbooks, annual reports, and issues of The Final Draft. You can browse their collection by contributor, county, and item type as well as search by keyword.

Without the help of the Digital Heritage Center, Durham Tech would not be able to make these publications as easily available online, and we appreciate their work helping us and other organizations make these materials more easily accessible to a wider audience.
