The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center was established in 2009 to provide digitization and digital publishing services to cultural heritage organizations in North Carolina. The advisory board is composed of leaders from professional organizations and institutions representative of the broad variety of cultural heritage organizations eligible to work with the Digital Heritage Center. The board meets annually and advises the Digital Heritage Center staff on policies and collection development. The board plays an important role in helping to determine priorities for major projects. Board members, in consultation with their constituencies, may also suggest specific projects and partnerships.
Board members representing specific institutions or organizations have standing appointments to the advisory board. Professional organizations will be represented by the president or other office-holder designated by the organization and will rotate off when their term of office is completed or after two years.
Rotating board members will be selected by the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center in consultation with the State Library of North Carolina and will be invited by the Curator of the North Carolina Collection. These members will serve two-year terms on the board.
