Library Collections

The Library Collections Department relies heavily on faculty to aid in the development of our library's collection. We encourage all faculty members to make the library aware of book, periodical, and database titles that support the curriculum.

Each academic department has a departmental library liaison who distributes publication catalogs and reviews from Choice Review Online to aid you in your selections.

Purchase requests can be submitted in the following ways:

  • Send requests directly to the Library Collections Coordinator, Natalia Taylor Bowdoin ( ; 803-641-3492 ; Box 37)
  • Give requests to your departmental library liaison (see below)
  • USCA faculty, staff, and students may complete the online book request form

Note: Journal or database requests may require additional approval of your departmental chair and/or the Library Director due to the nature of the ongoing financial commitments associated with these items.

Thank you for helping us build a strong collection for USCA!
