Access and Location

The State Records Center (SRC) is located at 215 North Blount Street in the state government complex in downtown Raleigh. In addition to containing offices for the Government Records Branch, it was designed and equipped specifically for the storage of inactive governmental records. The branch also maintains other off-site records storage facilities.

In accordance with the NC Administrative Code, entry and access to the SRC building is limited to persons on official business. All visitors are required to provide identification (i.e., state government photo ID or driver's license) for inclusion in the SRC's Patron Registration database and must wear a "visitor" badge when in the building. Access by persons not on official business may be denied. Visitors must be escorted by branch staff when in the records storage areas or other areas beyond the administrative offices.

The SRC is located on the corner of Blount and Lane streets, directly behind the State Archives/State Library Building. The front door for the SRC faces the front door of the Governor's Mansion; the SRC's loading dock is on the side of the building facing Lane Street.
