Mary Livermore Library’s Special Collections and University Archives consist of rare and historic materials, as well as ongoing activities at the University. The collections cover a wide range of subject areas, including UNCP events and history, faculty scholarship, Lumbee history, and local history. The collections include The Elmer W. Hunt Photograph Collection, the first college catalogs, UNCP yearbooks, and bibliographies of campus scholarship.

If you are looking for land deeds, the county Registrar of Deeds should contain information. Some counties have software that will allow you to search their records. Below are links to several area Register of Deeds offices.  Be sure to notes dates of coverage for deed books. Not all deed books can be access electronically.

To search deeds and land grants, you may need to visit public libraries. Most public libraries collect local history and genealogical records and books. Few academic libraries collect such items. Local history museums may also contain local history and genealogical materials.
