Many universities have reflected on how their institutions have changed during periods of war, and University of North Carolina archivist, Janis Holder, and her colleagues recently created this thoughtful digital collection that looks into that very subject. They began by asking how war affected the university as it carried out its primary educational mission and how students and faculty were directly affected by various wars. The result of their labors is this online exhibit, which brings together primary documents from the university's archives, such as journals, photographs, convocation addresses, and newspaper articles. The different sections on the site include "Civil War", "World War I", and "World War II". Within each section, visitors will learn about the university's response and service as each conflict emerged, and also about the effects that each event had on students, faculty, and members of the local Chapel Hill community.
