The Gregg-Graniteville Library contains over 130,000 print volumes and over 3,000 media materials. The library also has access to 232 electronic periodical indexes and databases (many with full text), over 30,000 e-journals, and approximately 350,000 e-books. The Gregg-Graniteville Library is a Federal Document Depository and holds more than 14,000 government documents with electronic access to many additional titles. The library collection is intended to support the university curriculum across all disciplines and to meet the reading, reference, and research needs of students, faculty, and staff of the University of South Carolina Aiken.

The Library Collections Department relies heavily on faculty to aid in 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 magazine 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!
