As I was learning about the HeritageQuest deal with the Asheville-Buncombe library system which was announced today, I also discovered that the Pack Library special collection is available for searching online. Not all of the collection is digitized yet, but a number of images are and it is searchable. The search form is at this link. The special collections include images, newspapers among other items.

According to the library system site…

Our online database contains an inventory of historic photographs and documents from the North Carolina Collection at Pack Memorial Library. We have over 1000 images and items that document the history of Asheville and Western North Carolina available online. The collection is only partially online now, but images and other research aides are being added as they become available. To access the collection, click here.
