New Study Room Policy


A new policy dealing with the use and reservation of library study rooms was recently put in to effect. Some highlights of the policy are:

  • Study rooms can only be reserved by groups (consisting of at least half of the room's total occupancy)
  • Rooms may be reserved for a maximum of three hours with no renewals if other groups are waiting
  • Reservations may be made by contacting the front desk of the library (x2050)
  • Please note the green signs on study room windows, as they indicate reservations (see example below)

Please see the web page linked from our facility usage page to read the entire policy.

Databases Restored



Two databases eliminated last year – Ovid Nursing Collection II: Lippencott Premier Nursing Journals and ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source - have been restored on a PASCAL-negotiated one year contract thanks to several SC libraries who agreed to foot the bill for the entire state. These databases combine to index 863 titles, and provide full text for 738 titles.


New Credo Reference Materials


Our Credo Reference collection has grown to over 450 titles. If you're unfamiliar with Credo Reference, here's a description:


A reference source that includes more than 450 reference books, 200,000 graphic images, and 100,000 audio pronunciation files and sound clips. You may search titles individually, all at once, by major subject categories, or in any combination. Provides citation examples for APA, MLA and Chicago style at the bottom of every record.
