The Laupus Library History Collection collects, catalogs, preserves, and displays materials relevant to the history of health care. Collections include historical materials from medicine, nursing, the allied health sciences, dentistry, pharmacology, and public health. Materials of worldwide interest dating from the sixteenth century into the twenty-first century are already part of this growing collection.

A special focus of the History Collections is on primary care practices in eastern North Carolina. In keeping with this focus, the Laupus Library supports an Oral History Program through which interviews with long-time health care providers are recorded and archived. Historical materials relating to minority health care and minority health care professionals are of particular interest to the program.
