Abstract The Health Sciences Library (HSL) was established as a unit of the Division of Health Affairs at the University of North Carolina in 1952. However, it was not named Health Sciences Library until 1968. It served as the central library for the University hospital and the division's five schools (Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health) and their associated programs. This collection consists chiefly of photographs documenting the history and staff of the Health Sciences Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, dating primarily from the 1990s to 2000s, although some are earlier. The remainder of the collection is made up of snapshots, photographs and formal portraits of UNC staff, faculty, and buildings, from the early- to mid-1900s.
