100% success in selecting eBooks – Guaranteed!


Here's Felix. He's so sad! He bought 100 eBooks last year and only 20 got used. Here's Adele. She is so happy! She bought 100 eBooks last year and every single one got used.

Old model - Need 100 eBooks. Select 100 books.

New model - Need 100 eBooks, preselect hundreds of books and let your students find them in OneSearch alongside books and eBooks we already own. In most cases, purchases aren't triggered until they are used three times. Delegate 50% to 75% of your book/eBook budget to the new model and save the rest for physical books or eBooks you know will be used.

Here are two databases you might want to pay special attention to this year as they contain some wonderful titles not included in OneSearch.

Need a textbook? Try Springer.

The title will be hosted it the SpringerLink database.

Order an eTextbook through the library.

Place the title or chapter urls in Canvas.

Unlimited users!

Paper copies available at $25.00.

Library Staff take on new duties

After working part time for the past four years as the library's weekend librarian, Mr. Fred Guyette has resigned to concentrate on his full-time job as a reference librarian at Erskine. We will miss him!

Various Hours and duties have been transferred to other library staff.

Mrs. Darlene McKay who has served as a part time reference librarian for many years will go to full-time and become the Public Services Supervisor. Her duties will include overseeing the Front Desk, Circulation, Reserves, and training student workers. She will also keep the library open on Sundays.

Ms. Sheila Gold will add Saturday hours to her duties as a technical services assistant in Cataloging.

Library Renovation



  • Two of our eBook providers, Taylor and Francis and CRCnetBase have merged to become Taylor & Francis eBooks.
  • The library has DVD players and external DVD players for check out..
  • It also has a laptop for 3 hr in house use which connects to the two flat screens in the study rooms.
  • The library has a wheeled podium (formally know as a dictionary stand) for use in the study rooms.
  • While the library is no longer in the business of laminating, it still binds.
  • Where is the library? Part of it is in Johnston Hall in the new Curriculum Lab. Part of it is at the University Center in Greenville. Part of it is at the School of Public Service and Administration (Command College) - on Bleckley. And of course it is in Thrift and online. Bigger and better than ever!
