State Archives of North Carolina
The State Archives of North Carolina (SANC) provides guidance concerning the preservation and management of government records to state, county, city and state university officials; and collects, preserves and provides public access to historically significant archival materials relating to North Carolina. The first role is handled primarily by the Government Records Section, while the second is the focus of several specialized sections, which are collectively called the “State Archives of North Carolina.”
