Online Catalog and Finding Aids
MARS (Manuscript and Archives Reference System) is the online catalog for the State Archives, Government Records Section, Outer Banks History Center and Western Regional Archives. Although the information available in MARS is extensive, it does not
include every item in our collection. Selected documents can be viewed through MARS, but it primarily serves as an index to archival holdings.
To see images for those selected documents available to view through MARS, you will need a DjVu Viewer Browser Plug-in, available as freeware from http://www.djvuviewer.com. However, the majority of our digitized and born-digital materials are available through the North Carolina Digital Collections.
Finding aids are narrative descriptions of archival materials and often provide more detailed information about individual collections than can be found in MARS, including box and folder lists. The finding aids for State Archives are organized by type of materials; the Outer Banks History Center and Western Regional Archives finding aids are listed separately.
