Community History Collections

A community's history lives in the files and records of its smaller organizations. UNCG hopes to work with many community groups (schools, churches, neighborhood associations, and even individuals)  to make some of this history available online. The items in this digital collection are not held by UNCG; they are housed in the homes and offices of individuals, businesses, and local community groups, as noted in each item's description.

Youth Achievers Digitizing Greensboro History

PhotoOthers were digitized as part of an IMLS Sparks!Ignition Grant funded through the Institute of Museum and Library Services in partnership with Greensboro's Hayes-Taylor YMCA and its Youth Achievers Program. This pilot program allowed the Digital Projects unit to test field-based digitzation methods (e.g. digital cameras. etc.) so that students could capture collections in the community, both at individual homes and offices and at a commmunity scanning event held at the YMCA. While image quality may not be perfect, this approach allowed us to digitize materials that might not otherwise make their way online.

If you have interesting or historically significant items, we would like to talk to you. Email us at ttt@digitalgreensboro.org.

Community-based Research Project

These items were digitized as part of a Community Based Research Grant sponsored by the Office of Leadership and Service Learning at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.This pilot program allowed the Digital Projects unit to test field-based digitzation methods (e.g. digital cameras. etc.) that might make the process easier for partner institutions. While image quality may not be perfect, this approach will allow us to digitize materials that might not otherwise make their way online.
