If you’ve visited the Digital Collections of the State Archives and State Library lately, you may have a noticed a significant new edition. The first forty-four volumes (1924-1967) of the North Carolina Historical Review are now available online there. First published by North Carolina Historical Publications in the spring of 1924, the quarterly Review quickly became known for scholarly excellence. It continues that legacy today.

Now in its ninetieth year of publication, the North Carolina Historical Review has provided a forum for students, historians and the general public to explore North Carolina’s rich history. Each issue of the Review contains several articles and essays, a selection of book reviews and notes of historical interest. Access to these new digital volumes is free, and the full text of each of the 176 issues digitized by the State Library is searchable.

Digitization of the North Carolina Historical Review was made possible through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). LTSA funds have also supported many other projects housed, in the North Carolina Digital Collections, a joint project of the State Archives and the State Library of North Carolina.

Print copies and subscriptions can be purchased online through the North Carolina Historical Publications store.
