The Goldmine Repository at UNC Charlotte

The Goldmine is a digital repository under development at J. Murrey Atkins Library, UNC Charlotte. The Goldmine features oral history interviews digitized as part of the project Living Charlotte: The Postwar Development of a New South City. We plan to add more digital resources that document the history and culture of our university and the Charlotte region, including: additional oral history interviews, manuscripts, university records, publications, photographs, maps, moving images, and other selections from Department of Special Collections.

Built on the Islandora platform, The Goldmine serves as a digital repository for both the long-term preservation of digital resources and access to them.

The Goldmine team includes:
Maggie Bailey, UI Developer
Rita Johnston, Digital Projects Librarian
Joseph Nicholson, Metadata Librarian
Derek Norton, Software Developer
Bob Price, Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives
Dawn Schmitz, Digital Programs Archivist and Interim Head of Special Collections
Brad Spry, Infrastructure Architecture and Engineering


Every prospector dreams of finding a goldmine!
