It is the primary charge of MosaicNC to digitally publish exhibits on various special topics and future installments of two long-running projects of the Historical Publications Office: the Colonial Records of North Carolina and the Governors’ Papers Project. Through this digital medium, we aim to provide free and open access to our work for the educational benefit of present and future generations of North Carolinians.
