News…From the Carolina Room

Jane Johnson

Manager, Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room

Main Library, 310 N. Tryon, Charlotte, NC




We recently said goodbye to NCR Librarian Hannah Cox.  She has taken a fabulous archivist job in another state, and we miss her and wish her well in her career.

The new version of was launched recently.  It was redone at the request of our Web Services Dept. to make it more user friendly on mobile devices. We still have a few problems that need to be resolved.  So, if you visit the site and find something that is not satisfactory, we would appreciate the feedback.  It has hundreds of pages, and it takes a long time to figure out what did not go well in the conversion.  We noticed the death dates in the cemetery database did not make the redesign, so Web Services is working on now.  So, please contact us if you find things we need to fix.

Our collection has been growing by leaps and bounds!  We have just hit 78,925 cataloged items.  As you can see from the list below, the Midwest is getting better representation.
