Abstract:
Before 1886, the libraries of the University of North Carolina were inferior to the private libraries of two students' groups, the Dialectic Society and the Philanthropic Society. Similar at the time to many American universities as they modernized their curriculum, the university and the student societies worked together. Between 1886 and 1906, the two societies worked with the university to merge all their collections together under the banner of the university library. The societies also contributed funds to purchase books and periodicals, helped administer the collections, and provided endowment funds.
