Reference: Yearbooks from 51 N.C. Colleges, Universities Archived Together Online

From the UNC News Service:

Yearbooks from 14 of the 17 UNC system institutions – plus 37 other schools – are now archived together online, thanks to a project based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library.

The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center has scanned and posted the yearbooks. They are part of the center’s efforts to digitize and preserve college and university yearbooks from across the state.

So far, the project has scanned more than 800,000 pages from 51 schools, said Nick Graham, program coordinator for the center. The earliest is the 1890 “Hellenian” from Chapel Hill; three UNC campuses have already contributed their 2010 yearbooks. (The three UNC system institutions not represented on the new site are the UNC School of the Arts, the N.C. School of Science and Math and N.C. State University, the last having previously digitized its yearbooks independently.)
