The North Carolina Periodicals Index is produced by the staff of the Verona Joyner Langford North Carolina Collection, J.Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina. The index provides access to articles in regional publications that pertain to a wide range of North Carolina-related topics, including the arts, business, culture, history, law, natural resources, public policy, tourism, and travel.
Coverage includes 68 current and historic publications, most of which are not indexed in standard reference tools. Content coverage is selective as articles must be at least a page in length to be included. Initial coverage began in January, 1992, but retrospective coverage of historically important titles extends to the 1930s.
