NC LIVE Projects

Ongoing projects

Hosted Proxy Project

NC LIVE has launched a new Hosted Proxy service, available to all our libraries as a benefit of being an NC LIVE member. This service provides an easy way for patrons to remotely access all of a library's licensed content, both resources provided by NC LIVE and those licensed locally. This service may be especially useful for libraries that have had difficulty implementing a locally-hosted proxy service. More information

Completed projects

NC LIVE Website Update

The NC LIVE website has not undergone a significant upgrade in several years. The NC LIVE community has expressed an interest in improving the site's functionality and appearance. A technology upgrade of its Drupal software is also due. More information

Patron Success Story Pilot Project

In tandem with the the NC LIVE Impact promotional campaign, NC LIVE staff created patron story graphics for member libraries. The patron stories are available as part of the Impact Campaign Toolkit.

North Carolina Heritage Index Project

The aim of the "Heritage Indexing" proof-of-concept project is to implement a "one stop shop" means for librarians and library users to simultaneously search metadata for digital library assets of participating North Carolina libraries. During the pilot phase of the project the collections will be from the following libraries: the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center, the State Library of North Carolina, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The index and search interface will exist on NC LIVE servers and be accessible through the site (UPDATE: the completed site can be found at More information.

Open Library NC Project

The Open Library NC Project is a collaboration between the Internet Archive and NC LIVE. Because of this collaboration, all of North Carolina has access to a large-scale shared downloadable eBook collection called the Open Library eBook Lending Collection. The eBooks in this collection are digital scans of books contributed by libraries around the country. More information
