expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library's Photoduplication Service was founded in the early 1950s with the primary objective of making the holdings of the University Library more readily available to scholars and researchers. The unit's name soon changed to Photographic Services, which specialized in photographic processes (copy negatives and photo prints), microfilm and microfilm duplication, and a relatively new technical process called "xerography." Eventually, in addition to negative microfilm production, it performed still photography, positive microfilm printing, and other services for the University Library and other North Carolina libraries.

In 1982, Photographic Services was reorganized and placed under the supervision of the North Carolina Collection, with Jerry W. Cotten (then the Collection's Photographic Archivist) at its head. Through the 1970s and 1980s, one of the primary services of the unit was the duplication and printing of duplicate library catalog cards. Near the end of the 1990s, with the increase in digital technology and an industry trend that was moving away from conventional analog processes, the unit upgraded its name to Imaging and Photographic Services. By 2006, the Library phased out all of its previous analog photoduplication methods (including conventional photographic processes) and created the Digital Production Center, a subunit of the Carolina Digital Library and Archives.
