Recent visitors to the main State Archives of North Carolina website, archives.ncdcr.gov, may have noticed that things look a little different. That’s because on November 16, we launched a redesigned version of the website that brings it in line with the design of other State agency websites, creating a uniform look and feel and allowing for consistency in navigation. (Check out the announcement post on the NC Archives blog for more details.)
That said, those who are used to navigating the Government Records portion of the website will find that the link structure and architecture haven’t changed that much. Records retention schedules are still divided into Local, State, and University, and all of our digital records policies and guidelines are still gathered in one place. One advantage of the new system is that each of our resources has its own landing page, separate from the file itself–so if, for example, a records retention schedule is updated, we can change the file out without the links automatically breaking.
However, as you might expect, this also means that any links designed around the old website are now broken. We are working to update all of our resource materials (including old blog posts) so that the links are current again. In the meantime, if you need the new link to a records retention schedule, records request form, set of digital guidelines, or other resource, please contact a records analyst and we’ll get you the updated link.
Thanks for your patience, and we hope you enjoy the new design!
