State Library Web Site Redesign
The State Library is redesigning our website with the goal of creating the best possible experience for our users. Please take a moment to have a look. We welcome your feedback on the new web site.

General Cataloging Services

In addition to services to State Agencies, other cataloging efforts at the Government and Heritage Library (GHL) benefit all North Carolina librarians.

NACO Authority

As an independent NACO library the GHL contributes North Carolina people, corporations, state agency names, and geographic headings to the Library of Congress’ Name Authority File to promote ease of access to materials by or about North Carolina.

NACO questions? Contact Vicki Brueck.

Union Listing Services

The State Library of North Carolina is the agent for the North Carolina Online Union List of Serials. Part of the OCLC Union List of Serials System, the online union list provides access to summary holdings statements of union list groups and their member institutions. Records are entered by individual North Carolina libraries. For a more thorough discussion of the OCLC Union List and a description of its flexibility, visit the OCLC Web site.

How to Access

The North Carolina Online Union List of Serials can be accessed via the Interlibrary Loan Subsystem of OCLC. The group access symbol for North Carolina is NC$A.

Benefits of Participation

  • Facilitates cooperative collection development.
  • Improves interlibrary loan efficiency for serial requests.
