WU Special Collections Tapped
The Traveling Archivist Program (TAP) is a pilot project developed by the North Carolina State Historic Records Advisory Board and the North Carolina State Archives. The goal of the program is to offer direct assistance to institutions that preserve North Carolina’s historical heritage. TAP provides archival care instructions to institutions with collections potentially at risk (rare, delicate holdings, etc.).
In late November 2009 the EKS Library received confirmation from Mr. Jeffrey Crow (Deputy Secretary, Office of Archives and History) that the Wingate University Archives has been selected for the program. Forty institutions from around the state will be served throughout a series of two 8-month cycles beginning this Spring.
