Thomas Cooper Library
Thomas Cooper Library, located in the heart of campus, is the place where you undoubtedly spent several late nights during your time as an undergraduate at Carolina. Now, as alumni, My Carolina members still have the benefit of checking out books for work or pleasure.
NEW! As of August 31, 2012, in addition to checkout privileges, My Carolina members have remote access to two online research databases through the USC Libraries’ membership in the PASCAL consortium, Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries.
The content of the databases cuts across all disciplines, but they are
especially strong in business, the humanities and the social sciences.
