Sharing research is a fundamental goal of archaeology, and facilitating this research is an important function of the OSA. We aim to share the information gathered through the study of North Carolina's cultural heritage, conducted by OSA staff, colleagues, and students, with the citizens of this state, to whom it belongs. Additionally, staff archaeologists make it a priority to disseminate this research through workshops, symposia, and professional papers at state, regional, and national archaeological meetings.

Interested in conducting professional or student research in the OSA library, archaeological site inventory, or artifact collections? Access is available to these collections by appointment only. For library and site inventory access, please submit a site file research request. To conduct research on the artifact collections, please contact the OSARC Laboratory Supervisor for a "Collections Access Request" form at least two weeks in advance.
