A non-refundable fee of $2.00 for each copy must accompany requests for academic transcripts. The fee is $2.00 per copy; requests for multiple copies should include payments in increments of $2.00 (i.e., $4.00 for two copies, etc.). The State Archives cannot accept estimated payments or payments in excess of the correct fee. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

Many hundreds of North Carolina families, individuals, businesses have already donated their papers and archives to the private papers area of the State Archives of North Carolina. Increasingly, others are realizing the numerous advantages to placing private papers and manuscripts with the Archives, the state's permanent repository for historical materials. During processing, any manuscript papers that are badly damaged are identified and placed for repair in our in-house Conservation Lab.

The State Archives has one of the best collections of maps of North Carolina in the nation. The collection consists of over 6,000 maps depicting North Carolina or some portion thereof. These maps have been brought together from various sources to create a reference collection consisting of manuscript and published maps, as well as photographic and facsimile copies of maps that have been made from originals located elsewhere in the United States and abroad.
