The types of publications include informational brochures and pamphlets, various types of reports (annual, biennial, technical, statistical, etc.), serial publications (newsletters, checklists, magazines, etc.), handbooks, studies and a variety of other information resources produced by the government. The focus of the collection is on state government publications from 2002 to current, but will also feature historical North Carolina publications of enduring value that have been scanned from their original print format.
