The Gregg-Graniteville Library contains over 130,000 print volumes, 2,000 physical media materials, and over 312,948 streaming media titles. The library also has access to 249 databases (many with full text), over 170,000 e-journals, and over 1,200,000 e-books. The Gregg-Graniteville Library is a Federal Document Depository and holds more than 10,000 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 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org ; 803-641-3492 ; Box 37)
Give requests to your departmental library liaison (see below)
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!
The Library Collections Department is happy to receive donations of books and some academic journals. Please read the terms and conditions covered in the Deed of Gift Form (pdf) and fill out the form before donating your items. Materials that are not selected for addition to the collection will be offered to other USC campuses or donated to either the American Association of University Women for their annual book sale or to Better World Books. Both organizations use the proceeds from the sale of the books to further education and literacy in the U.S. and abroad. Contact the Library Collections Department before bringing your materials to the library so we may help you unload your donations.
