Back in 2003, the North Carolina History and Fiction Digital Library was started and the first year was quite a success. The project began with the digitizing of 200 texts pertaining to the history of 29 eastern North Carolina counties. Over the past few years, in partnership with the Historic Hope Foundation, Tobacco Farm Life Museum, the Country Doctor Museum, and members of ECU's College of Education, the Digital Library has greatly expanded its collection. Today the project is known as the Eastern North Carolina Digital Library and visitors with an interest in the region will find much to enjoy here. The materials can be browsed by title, author, subject, county, artifacts, maps, or by the classroom heading. This last option is crucial, as it includes lesson plans and activities. The Podcasts area is a real treat, as it features conversations about objects from the Hope Plantation and the Country Doctor Museum. In the documents area, visitors would do well to start their journey by reading "An Account of the Cape Fear Country, 1731" which is a dramatic and descriptive narrative for the ages.
