North Carolina literature in the North Carolina Collection
The North Carolina Collection collects novels, poetry, essays, and other literary works by Tar Heel authors, as well as works of fiction set in the state. The collection also maintains an extensive file of newspaper clippings and book reviews about North Carolina literary works.
The UNC Library's online catalog is the best place to start your search for North Carolina literature. Most (about 90%) of the holdings of the North Carolina Collection are cataloged online. To search for materials by a specific author, select an "author" search. Many of the literary works in the NCC are also cataloged by subject. For example, to search for novels set in North Carolina, select a "subject" search and enter the phrase North Carolina -- Fiction.
