Welcome to the North Carolina State Government Web Site Archives and Access Program!

This program is a service of the State Archives of North Carolina and the State Library of North Carolina with two goals:

Search the North Carolina State Government Web Site Archive

Use this for state agency web sites and social media sites; results appear on the Archive-It web site.


Search the North Carolina State Government Social Media Archive

Use this for more in-depth searching of state agency social media accounts and messaging content; results appear on the ArchiveSocial web site.


What will you find in the Web Site Archives?

The archives contain North Carolina state government agency, licensing board, and commission web pages dating back to 1996. Archived site content includes: images and audio and video files; agency policies and publications posted on sites; board and commission meeting minutes. The social media archives contain content from archived state agency social media sites dating back to 2012.

The archives are created using two different services. The Web Site Archive includes state government agency web sites (e.g. the site for the Governor of North Carolina) and social media sites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, and blogs) that have been captured using Archive-It. The Social Media Archive is captured using ArchiveSocial. It contains state agency social media accounts, including content that is not included in the Web Site Archive, such as private messaging.
