Available Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; or by appointment. The Special Collections/Archives Collection is a repository for the published and unpublished records of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke (previously known as Croatan Normal School, Indian Normal School of Robeson County, Cherokee Indian Normal School, Pembroke State College for Indians, Pembroke State College, and Pembroke State University). The collection includes reports, student yearbooks, catalogs, faculty publications, theses, photographs, correspondence of the administration, minutes of the Board of Trustees and the Faculty Senate, and other important records of the University's unique history.
The Special Collections/ Archives area of the Mary Livermore Library is located on the first floor, with the exception of the Charlie Rose Collection, which is located in Room 226 on the second floor. Special Collections/Archives houses materials which require special handling and preservation. While many of the items in the collections are unique and valuable historical resources, patrons are encouraged to use these materials in their research. The physical items in the collections are to be used only in the Library; however, many of the materials are available online, via the library’s digital collections.
Special Collections staff is available to assist patrons in finding materials to further their research.
