A new batch of digital materials are now available and online at DigitalNC, courtesy of our partner, Durham Technical Community College. Included in this collection is over a half-dozen editions of College Profiles for Durham Tech, the 2017-2018 copy of their Catalog & Student Handbook, the 2018 Campus Harvest Food Pantry Cookbook created by students, and the 2018 copy of The Final Draft.

Included first in this set is a series of College Profiles for Durham Technical Community College. These profiles are short summaries of the statistics about life on campus and curricula at DTCC. These profiles include enrollment rates, student demographics, rates of completion, the number of programs available to students, numbers of faculty, and more. They even include statistics about the facilities and library. Using these profiles, we can see how much Durham Tech has grown in the past decade. For example, the DTCC library had 5 e-books in July 2009, and by July 2016, they had 193,875!

Next is a copy of the 2017-2018 DTCC Catalog & Student Handbook. It includes information on admission, tuition rates and enrollment statistics, as well as information on student services, programs of study, and classes that are available.

There is also the 2018 DTCC Campus Harvest Food Pantry Cookbook, a cookbook created and published by the college’s students and members of Campus Harvest Food Pantry. It includes information on food education, several dozens of recipes for breakfast, lunches, dinners, and more, and nutrition facts for every dish. Operated on donations, the cookbook also includes contact information if readers want to support their efforts.

Finally, there is a proof copy of the 2018 edition of The Final Draft, a literary journal created by students and faculty of DTCC, designed to be “A Collection of Creative Works”. It includes short fiction, poetry, photographs, and artwork throughout its pages.
